"We realize healthy options can be hard to find and our Foursquare app allows users to efficiently locate healthy options near them."
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
With the launch of MyVirtualHealthCheck on the Android Marketplace, people can securely record, monitor and share vital sign information right from the mobile device. One versatile app allows users to manage Glucose, Heart Rate, Blood Pressure and Weight, while making a healthier lifestyle easier to achieve with the aid of a robust set of tools.
The MyVirtualHealthCheck app also allows users to e-mail physiological data to healthcare providers and caregivers directly from the application. This important function gives users control over personal biometric information. More importantly, this feature provides a window into personal vital data over time, instead of isolated data points healthcare providers currently use to make healthcare decisions. The result? Better informed patients, caregivers and physicians, and most importantly, better health.
In addition, the MyVirtualHealthCheck Android app introduces “Healthy Spots” using the location-based power of Foursquare. Users can get a listing of healthy spots near their current location. They can find a listing of Fitness, Food, Outdoors and Medical options close by. We know that many people are surrounded by unhealthy options and by applying the location-based technology of Foursquare, we make it easy to find alternative healthy spots. "We are really excited about integrating the location-based social media Foursquare app within our Android app," said Michael Seringer, Vice President of Chronic Care Management, Inc. "We realize healthy options can be hard to find and our Foursquare app allows users to efficiently locate healthy options near them."
The MyVirtualHealthCheck app also features a nutrition search with more than 17,000 food items. The MyVirtualHealthCheck app uses the USDA Nutritional database, and is further supplemented by ongoing research into the nutritional make-up of many popular food items.
What's more, the app givers users free access to the MyVirtualHealthCheck.com health and disease management website, which provides even more tools and functionality to manage disease.
