As health care treatment becomes more complex, it’s more important than ever to have a complete record of your medical history. Controlling your data gives you the power to actively participate in your care.
Skillman, NJ (PRWEB) January 27, 2012
Awarded the Caregiver Friendly Award (Service Category) for 2011, Zweena is a provider of online Personal Health Record services that stands out because it does all the work for the patient by gathering patient medical records from multiple healthcare providers, assembling these records in a structured format, and then securely storing the organized records in both Zweenahealth.com and Microsoft HealthVault, providing a highly secure and private online PHR and health information management platform that can be accessed at any time and from any location, empowering patients with timely, accurate and up-to-date information that can save a life and improve the overall quality of healthcare provided.
CEO John Phelan founded Zweena in 2006 with the vision of creating a truly service-based consumer health record company. Quoting Phelan, "We created a company and an application around the premise that the consumer needs to be in the middle. The consumer needs to be empowered; the consumer needs to have the data, regardless of if they’re going to do anything with it." Phelan continues, "The idea is making the consumer go from being reactive, in a health care situation, to proactive."
Zweena has received praise for being unique in its approach to PHR service. On how Zweena works, Phelan says:
"You tell us who your doctors are, you give us permission to go collect the records on your behalf, we go get copies of your records. Literally we go and call the (doctor) offices and they make photo copies. It’s not sexy. They basically send those copies to us. I have a staff of medical coders and a nurse who basically reviews every single sheet of paper."
Zweena presents an opportunity for patients to have a truly comprehensive, accurate and accessible online personal health record. By minimizing stress and error and presenting useful health information in a clear and actionable way, Zweena allows patients to really be in control of their health information, and makes it possible for providers to access updated and accurate information that saves lives, valuable time and unnecessary costs.
"As health care treatment becomes more complex, it’s more important than ever to have a complete record of your medical history. Controlling your data gives you the power to actively participate in your care. It also provides medical professionals a complete picture so they can design better treatment plans and avoid medical errors." says Phelan.
