Healthspek Users Can Now Import Their Doctors’ Records into Their Personal Health Record

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Healthspek is a fully featured Personal Health Record with customizable functionality introduced by desktop widgets called “Speks.” It empowers the consumer by allowing her to track, collect and safely disseminate personal healthcare information. Healthspek is a free iPad App. Healthspek Viewer is free iPhone App.

This new capability allows users of Healthspek’s PHR to request records from their physician with a couple of taps. Overview. The physician’s office responds by securely sending the patient’s computer-readable medical file through a private upload website that is unique to the Healthspek user. View a video.

Healthspek accepts the CCD format that is common to nearly all computer software that doctors use.

In addition, Healthspek can now receive most other file formats ( JPG, PDF, TIF, GIF, PNG, BMP) to add to a user’s health record. These image files can contain lab results, x-ray images, visit summaries, etc. Files can be linked to (associated with) Lab and Imaging events within a user’s health record. Files can also be emailed by a user from Healthspek to desired email recipients. View a video.

“This is a big step that underscores our commitment to the broader goal of healthcare inter-connectivity including Blue Button Plus, Health Information Exchanges, and DIRECT protocol,” says Randy Farr, CEO of Healthspek.

“This is groundbreaking. Finally a patient can order her doctor to send her records electronically. And we've made it simple.”

“We believe that the future of healthcare interconnectivity will be patient driven. When a patient initiates a request, or takes the action to send her medical record, there are no issues with permissions or identity.”

“These two issues, patient permission and identity, absolutely plague the current efforts of HIEs and consortia in trying to effect doctor-to-doctor transfer of patient information,” says Bruce LeFew – COO of Healthspek.

Healthspek is a Nashville-based company. Healthspek is a free iPad App that can be used to track, collect and safely disseminate personal healthcare information. Users can securely manage their medical records, immunizations, conditions, providers and insurance, all with a swipe of the finger. For added convenience, mothers, fathers and guardians can include their family members under the same account. Users get 24/7 access to their entire health record from any browser or iPad. And, importantly, so will their selected doctor, emergency room, specialist, or clinic with Internet access. What’s more, with the handy Carry Card included, a user’s critical health information can be with him or her at all times—even if the iPad is not.
