From Walgreen's to the Chain Drug Consortium which comprises 12 pharmacy chains (including Kinney Drug, Duane Reade, Lewis Drug and Kerr Drug) and over 1,000 stores, ZweenaHealth.com gives patients the ability to share their PHR with pharmacies through the Microsoft HealthVault connect button. ZweenaHealth.com is a provider of online PHR (Personal Health Record) and health information management services. Zweena collects patient medical records directly from doctors’ offices, organizes and digitizes them to create an electronic health record that provides updated health information and is accessible online. Zweena also collaborates with Microsoft HealthVault by updating patients' personal HealthVault accounts.
With the Microsoft HealthVault connect button feature available on the Zweena interface, customers can share their PHR with their pharmacies, allowing for prescriptions to be delivered with confidence and as instantly as possible.
With this system, key advantages include prescriptions that factor in a patient’s accurate medical history and health information, leading to better treatments, cost savings and reduced risk of medical complications.
Also the added convenience and reduction in information processing times can greatly improve chances of a speedy recovery as well as potentially reduce medical bills.
Zweena collects patients' medical records and health information from doctors’ offices and organizes and digitizes this information into a Zweena Health Record which is available in real-time online across internet-enabled devices from any location with Internet access.
