Syncing your Calendar
You can sync your HealthKit calendar to your iPhone, Outlook and Google calendar as well as any other calendar that uses the iCalendar format (iCalendar is a calendar format that allows people to share meetings across online calendar formats). Available to all practitioners on HealthKit, syncing your calendar enables you to see your patient appointments on your other calendars, even when you do not have access to your computer.
All you need to do is obtain your own unique syncing ID then connect it with your different calendars, then you'll be able to see your appointments even without logging on to your HealthKit account.
Getting your unique syncing address
You connect your HealthKit calendar and appointments with your other iPhone, Outlook, Google or other iCal-enabled calendars through a unique syncing address (also known as your iCal address) generated in your HealthKit account that you can access in two places:
- Your Users page: click the Calendar icon then click the Add iCal button to view your own unique syncing address; and
- On your Calendar: click the syncing icon at the top right then click the Add iCal button next to the practitioner whose unique syncing address you want to view.
You can also email the unique syncing address to your email address that you use to login.
Anyone with this unique syncing address can access your calendar so it is important to keep this unique address private. If you think this unique syncing address has or may have been compromised, generate a new unique syncing address by clicking the sync icon next to the address.
