The new iPad application enables real-time usage of medical records from multiple sources, eliminating one of the main pain points patients have with Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), giving them more than just storage
TEL-AVIV, Israel, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Launched its public beta a few days ago, Hello Doctor is designed for people in complex medical conditions, such as cancer and heart diseases. It enables to intuitively organize all your medical records in "SmarLists" making sure you can easily navigate and access them, no matter how many different doctors or clinics you visit.
With 90% of US patients wanting to self-manage their healthcare leveraging technology (Accenture survey, June 20, 2012), Hello Doctor gives patients (and case managers) a Personal Health Records (PHR) management system that provides real-time access (online and offline) to all documents on the application. The records, from multiple electronic and paper sources, can be added using the device's camera, from the iPad library or from Dropbox.
How many times did you go to a doctor, realizing you forgot one of the documents they asked to see? As if just being at the doctor's isn't stressful enough. Hello Doctor helps patients make sure this never happens again.
- Need to access older records? Just swipe to see older records of the same type.
- Can't tell a blood test from urine test? The files are organized according to type of record.
- Need to share a file with your Doctor? Use the email or fax to send your file in real-time.
A survey conducted by Hello Doctor, in the US, in March 2013, showed that 25% of the population was in a medical condition that required them to actively collect and manage medical records for themselves or a loved one.
Maayan Cohen, co-founder and CEO, is not surprised, she's been there herself. "Almost everyone has a relative who suffers from cancer or a heart condition. A few years ago my partner was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After spending two years as a 'case manager' and after he bravely won his battle, I knew I had to create a way to make this process easier for other patients and their families."
