Patientory Puts Patients in Control of Their Digital Healthcare
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Patientory Inc.'s innovative consumer application officially launched to the public at the JP Morgan Healthcare conference. Patientory is changing how the healthcare industry utilizes data by giving patients ownership of their medical records and giving them the ability to directly share their daily health data with physicians. The app serves as a cross-device hub in which users can view their health information, securely provide it to their preferred healthcare providers, and if desired, share their experiences with fellow patients.
The app syncs health data such as allergies, activity, blood pressure, weight, and more between all connected devices, including centralized EMRs. Healthcare providers and the patients they treat aren't always on the same page. Providers use medical records that patients only occasionally have access to. Conversely, patients are tracking valuable health data on mobile devices, but don't share it with their care providers.
If a patient records a walking workout on their watch, they can choose to share their heart rate with their doctor to view on a desktop or tablet. This instant communication between providers and patients can not only make care more effective, but less expensive as well. All Patientory software and information is stored on the blockchain, allowing for faster processing of high-volume data in a secure, decentralized ecosystem.
Patientory includes a social community component within the app to help users support one another. The feature allows users with similar conditions to ask questions, get recommendations, and share their experiences, so newly diagnosed patients can know what to expect. "We're in a time when consumers want more access and control to their own information," said Patientory Inc. CEO Chrissa McFarlane. "Use of mobile health and fitness trackers has grown quickly and it's important to make sure that is combined with health data to give both the consumer and their physicians a more comprehensive picture."
One of the biggest priorities when it comes to medical data is security, so much so, that the Affordable Care Act federally mandates how providers store and transfer digital health information. Patientory goes one step further by building their app's software on blockchain technology. This foundation enables full HIPAA compliance on one of the most secure platforms available, so the only people who can access medical data are those that are authorized.
The Patientory app's innovative features and design empowers users to take ownership of their medical information, and how it's shared in the digital age. By improving patient-provider collaboration to be more secure and simple, Patientory is making medical records more useful for everyone. Patientory had a successful beta program, and is now available at no charge on the Apple Store.
