San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2005
MediKeeper, a leading provider of Secure Personal Health Records (SPHR), today announced the release of MediVaultÂ. A key element in patient care is the prompt accessibility to important documents, lab test results, and diagnostic study (EKG, X-ray, Ultrasound, MRI, etc.) reports from a member's medical history. Records of such items can now be stored within MediVaultÂ and are immediately available at the member's sole discretion. This can be a very important feature in helping referred physicians optimize patient care as well as avoiding wasted office visits due to lack of information.
MediVaultÂ is a compliment to MediKeeper's current SPHR tool in that it allows for a convenient marriage of archived paper-based health records with a revolutionary and dynamic Web-based personal health record product. The addition of MediVault provides two key benefits to MediKeeper members: 1) A more comprehensive personal health record which includes digital images and archives of paper records. 2) The peace of mind of knowing that important paper records will be preserved in the event of a disaster or if the originals are lost.
MediVaultÂ also acts as a digital storage facility for personal records. Members can also use MediVaultÂ to store non-health related personal records or images in various file formats, thus allowing the elimination of cumbersome and often unorganized paper records. MediVaultÂ is an essential tool in the MediKeeper product suite as it allows individuals the ability to further prepare for a natural disaster by providing a secure and central online location to scan, upload, and store important paper documents that would otherwise be destroyed or unsalvageable.
"The devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina have forced us all to rethink our own disaster preparedness measures, no matter where we live in the United States," said George Schwartzman, co-founder and President of MediKeeper. "We hope that with the release of MediVaultÂ, our members will have increased peace of mind knowing that their critical documents and files are in a safe and secure location and readily accessible when they need them."
MediKeeper has agreed to donate 10,000 free memberships to Katrina victims in order to assist in them in their efforts to recover and rebuild.
MediKeeper is currently offering a 45-day free trial promotion. For additional information, please visit http://www.medikeeper.com.
