BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. and SINGAPORE, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Health Voyager, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GLHV), a US based full service international medical management company, offering access to a vast worldwide network of highly accredited facilities and providers offering healthcare surgical dental and wellness procedures, announced today that it entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Janus Medical Systems of Singapore. This MOU grants Global Health Voyager with exclusive global rights to market, sell and distribute Atreya, a dynamic personal health record management system, to be used by consumers for medical record organization and information distribution to their personal physicians. The Atreya product has a multitude of features and functions, including the storage of medical documents, x-rays, previous procedures, prescription information, calendar of dosage, appointments and other vital information. The product takes care in security, is HIPAA compliant, and even has features that allow your physicians permissions to see your prior health history.
"This MOU, once fully executed in the form of definitive agreement, is a game-changing technology for global medical management," said Ali Moussavi, CEO of Global Health Voyager. "The Atreya product will allow individuals to manage their personal health records online and via mobile applications. The uses of this product are vast; a few key categories are global travelers, chronically ill individuals, and newborns."
As early as 2006, the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics issued a report to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, specifically stating, "the greatest opportunities for improving health and health care lie in enabling information exchange between the three dimensions (areas) of the national health information infrastructure. The full potential of PHR (personal health records) systems will not be realized until they are capable of widespread exchange of information with EHRs and other sources of personal and other health data." The report went on to say, "the Federal government can offer vision and strategic leadership for PHR development and dissemination across its many roles in the health sector. NCVHS believes that HHS can encourage and actively participate in a public/private partnership that facilitates standards-based approaches in a harmonized legal and regulatory environment across geopolitical boundaries."
"Knowing that the federal government supports this technology advancement is one of the many catalysts for Global Health Voyager to get it's partnered Atreya product to market without delay, and to the full satisfaction of the consumers who register and use it," said Moussavi.
"We're looking forward to a productive and effective partnership with Global Health Voyager," noted Seema Singh, President of Janus Medical. "We believe Global Health Voyager, has the footprint and business plan needed to properly roll out this technology worldwide. The Atreya product is extremely intuitive for the consumer. In plain language it can manage all of your health records, making your trips to the doctor and hospital less stressful and much more organized.
A definitive agreement is expected to be signed between the two parties by the September 1, 2012. Terms of the MOU were not disclosed.
