Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) June 3, 2009 -- President Obama has made it his pledge to have electronic health records for all Americans within five years to save both dollars and lives. The concept of having medical information on paper charts that can get lost or destroyed over time is becoming obsolete. In addition with greater access to health information, patients are starting to take charge of their own health by organizing their medical records, researching hospitals and physicians, and interacting with other patients in online forums. Online tools such as fit right into Obama's paradigm of electronic medical records and the patient-initiated directive to be better informed about their health to make better health care decisions. is an online tool designed for health consumers who wish to track and monitors their vital health statistics and records. Blood pressure readings, blood sugar levels, weight, and more can be inputted on the website and then displayed over time in a color-coded graph. Comments can be inserted with each reading to record medication changes or symptoms associated with the reading. This website is particularly useful for patients who have been told they have pre-hypertension or pre-diabetes to monitor their levels to see if they would benefit from medication or diet change. Also, patients with recent medication changes can determine if the drug is having the desired effect. also facilitates communication between patients and their health care providers by allowing the graph in pdf format to be emailed directly to another person. is also a useful way to store health records. Medication names, dosage, and refill dates can be recorded and stored on this site. Dr. Mireille Moise designed because she wanted patients to "imagine one place which can be accessed anywhere that holds the name and contact information of your health care providers, your medication list, and your important health readings."

The site also includes informative health articles on disease conditions, trends in healthcare, as well as tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
