MediConnect Responds to Google Health Shutdown by Offering Displaced Customers Free Personal Health Record Accounts

  • MediConnect Builds on Expertise in Medical Record Retrieval and Management to Maintain Successful MyMediConnect Personal Health Record Portal amid Industry Flux
  • MediConnect Remains Committed to Expanding Universal Use of Personal Health Records
  • Company Offers Free Accounts to Users

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In response to the recent announcement that Google will be retiring its Google Health service, MediConnect Global today announced that its personal health record (PHR) portal, MyMediConnect, continues to grow and offers free online accounts to displaced Google Health users.

Google Health users can create a free MyMediConnect account and begin transferring their medical record information immediately by visiting www.mymediconnect.net.

“The personal health record space is going through some changes, but I want to assure our customers that MyMediConnect remains strong, and we aren’t going anywhere,” said Amy Rees Anderson, CEO of MediConnect Global. “Part of the reason we have been able to withstand some of the difficulties that have affected others that have tried offering an online personal health record portal is that our service has been built on an already solid foundation of expertise in health information technology. MediConnect has long been the worldwide leader in innovative medical record retrieval, digitization and management for businesses, and it has been easy to translate that proficiency into an easy-to-navigate service for individuals.”

MyMediConnect’s online portal provides a simple and intuitive interface that can access MediConnect’s vast database of more than six million digitized records – the largest of its kind in the world. After users choose from one of the multiple options offered for retrieving and importing their medical records into a HIPAA-compliant online environment, essential elements of those records can be easily extracted, and a consolidated summary of the user’s complete health picture is generated. In addition to easy access to a summary of their entire health picture, MyMediConnect provides users a number of useful features, including, among others: a prescription reminder; a wellness tracker; and an education center. This unique blend of services provides a customizable experience based on the individual’s health needs and goals.

For more than 15 years, MediConnect has offered medical record retrieval, digitization, storage and management to health insurance plans, life insurance companies and law firms. The company currently counts four out of the top five health plans in the United States among its large and expanding client list. In addition, MyMediConnect was selected by the Obama Administration as one of four PHR systems in the Medicare PHR Choice Pilot program.

“MediConnect believes that in order to have a successful healthcare system, consumers need to take a more active role in their personal health,” said Anderson. “MyMediConnect empowers individuals to access their health records and other essential health information at any time, from anywhere – the first step to taking control over their health. We remain committed to this endeavor, and will continue to offer consumers the stability, functionality and high level of service they need, both now and in the long-term.”
