Frost & Sullivan Examines the Future of On-Demand Mobile Personal Health Records

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Governments and increasingly technology-savvy healthcare consumers are demanding better quality care, cost containment, and improved access, fuelling development in mobile connectivity that provides on-demand access and ownership for all personal health information. True integration of health information, however, will require data to be collected along an ever-extending care continuum that currently includes providers, hospitals, physician specialty groups, imaging centers, laboratories, payers, government entities that oversee healthcare entitlements, and patients using personal health devices. The challenge lies in the fact that these stakeholders have historically operated independently, deploying unique IT infrastructures and fragmented patient record systems.

Frost & Sullivan's new white paper, Moving Beyond the Limitations of Fragmented Solutions, examines the challenges and multiple platforms of interoperability that must be mastered before a true on-demand mobile personal health record (PHR) can be introduced.

Ownership of personal health data is still a very undetermined element of ongoing healthcare reform in the U.S., as attempts encouraging patients to keep their health information up-to-date and physically own the digital files has been met with a tepid response. Historically, doctor's offices and hospitals have taken both control and responsibility of health records. Despite the apathetic response, as our healthcare system transitions to electronic health records (EHR), consumers are demanding digital access to personal health information. Because America is an increasingly mobile society, any ownership of health data on the part of healthcare consumers must include remote, on-demand access to all health related information.

"Two realities have emerged from widespread EHR deployment," noted Frost & Sullivan Connected Health Senior Industry Analyst Patrick Riley. "Firstly, the host of available EHR systems lack interoperability and cannot communicate with one another, therefore failing to reach the goal of creating seamless, universal and secure access to individual health information. Secondly, the end user, or patient, does not own his or her health information, as this data is stored within the IT protocols of the EHR system, proprietary to providers, hospitals and health systems."

Frost & Sullivan analysis has revealed an emerging leader in integration server capability that can address these concerns. CORAnet Solutions, Inc. is a seasoned healthcare information company that is the first to provide a true mobile system for PHR access. The solution integrates patient data from various sources and offers it on a mobile device in a user-friendly and secure format. It enables patients to update their information, allows access even without network coverage, permits the transfer of medical images, and facilitates on-demand mobile access to limited, life-saving individual patient information in emergency situations.

"After conducting both primary and secondary research analyzing mobile healthcare technology companies and their capabilities, Frost & Sullivan is able to validate its assessment of CORAnet and the company's leadership, history and current offerings in the on-demand mobile health technology industry," said Riley.
