San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2005
MediKeeper, a leading provider of Secure Personal Health Records, today announced the launch of their first-of-its-kind secure 24/7 service, providing access to critical medical information ÂAnytime, Anywhere, in Any Situation.Â Up until now, individuals with personal health records were required to disclose their password to allow a physician or emergency room access to their records. This critical shortcoming compromises privacy and prevents access in the event that the patient is unable to communicate. MediKeeper's unique service solves this problem by ensuring access, while maintaining patient privacy and security.
MediKeeper offers this service to its members by combining cutting-edge web technology with 24-hour emergency support. MediKeeper uses a proprietary process to authenticate emergency personnel and protect its members' privacy. Online personal health records are now just a phone call away, and can be immediately faxed or emailed directly to a physician's office or ER.
MediKeeper's service provides members with the ability to store and manage their individual health and personal information, using state-of-the-art methods emphasizing security, safety, and quality. MediKeeper serves as both a health management tool and a health care ÂcoachÂ educating patients and pushing them toward preventative, higher quality medicine. More than just a passive record keeper, it also assists with pharmaceutical management: the program actively looks for drug interactions within the patient's current medication list -- which are the 4th leading cause of death in hospitals today -- and helps seniors better understand the confusing Medicare prescription discount program to ensure they are receiving maximum savings.
By providing a service which allow consumers to print out their medical history, record of past tests and procedures, and listing of current medications, MediKeeper is a service by which members can reduce the time spent at medical appointments, manage chronic diseases, and prevent duplicative tests and medications which ultimately allows for additional health care cost savings.
With the addition of this new and unique service, MediKeeper has pushed personal health records closer to the vision set forth by President George Bush's and federal government for the industry.
ÂIndividuals recognize the value of online personal health records, but are concerned about privacy and security,Â said Dr. Bruce Tarzy, co-founder and Medical Director. ÂIndividuals with MediKeeper can have the peace of mind that their health information is secure, and for the first time, always accessible in a medical emergency.Â
MediKeeper is currently offering a 45-day free trial promotion. For additional information, please visit http://www.medikeeper.com.
