-Most Comprehensive Online Health Record Offering Available Exclusively For
NEW YORK, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- PinnacleCare, the premier private health advisory company, announced today the launch of PinnacleCare Health Records Online, a new tool exclusively for its' members that enables secure and private access to their updated health records twenty-four hours a day, no matter where they are in the world.
In today's healthcare system, patients use multiple doctors for many different needs. As a result, their health records are often scattered across several medical offices. The need for comprehensive medical records is undeniable, but for most consumers inexperienced with the healthcare system, the process of contacting doctors and gathering their medical files is both daunting and exceedingly time consuming.
Unlike other online personal health record systems such as Google Health or Microsoft's HealthVault where the patient gathers and manages their own medical records, PinnacleCare does the work for it's members; all medical records are collected, reviewed by PinnacleCare Physicians and stored electronically. "When an individual joins PinnacleCare, the first critical step we take is to gather and consolidate all their medical records into comprehensive electronic documents," stated PinnacleCare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Miles Varn. "These can then be easily sent to physicians which is vital in helping them make sound decisions about our members' healthcare," added Dr. Varn.
PinnacleCare members simply create a secure Log In and Password and are then able to instantly view their updated health records. The easy navigation of this password-protected site allows even first time users the ability to quickly find, view and print out any part of their health records including specific charts, exam information, scheduled appointments, test results and other vital health documents; all collected, reviewed and updated by PinnacleCare Physicians. For members on-the-go, the records can also be downloaded to a device, such as a password protected computer or a secure flash drive, for complete portability.
PinnacleCare's consolidation of comprehensive electronic medical records and the access to those records by both patients and physicians is the cornerstone of the future in health management. In addition, PinnacleCare goes beyond organizing members' medical history by offering access to world- renowned specialists, providing the most advanced medical research, coordinating appointments and helping Members enact proven preventive strategies for optimum longevity and health.
"PinnacleCare Health Records Online is just one of the many revolutionary health and wellness benefits we offer our members, who are accustomed to having all aspects of their lives taken care of by a trusted advisor, whether it be a lawyer, accountant or financial advisor," said PinnacleCare Vice- Chairman Tom Christopoul. "Instead of surrendering to the current healthcare system, our members look to us for the tools and expertise to proactively improve their experience and access to the best in healthcare," concluded Christopoul.
