US Patent Awarded for Advanced Health Biography and Wellness Education System

Inner Reach Corporation is pleased to announce that it has been awarded US Patent Number 8,738,392 for its Health Information Gathering System (HiGS®) the premier health biography and wellness education system. Twelve years in the making, the HiGS patent was and still is ahead of the curve with innovation for efficient and quality web-based delivery and care.    

This patent technology covers the use of various internet enabled devices to create, store and retrieve data from a database for a personal health history (health biography). The HiGS technology patent covers the ability for HiGS users to gather health information about themselves by way of Health Biographies, Health Risk Assessments, and Signs & Symptoms via any internet connected device with a web browser. This information is stored in a data repository, and then can be retrieved by the user in part or in whole through their Health Biography Results Report.

Inner Reach Corporation intellectual property includes the innovation of our Health Information Gathering System, (HiGS). HiGS, gives the person more than 60 e-Health Histories; 180+ Health Risk Assessments (HRAs); in excess of 120 Health Education Videos; Signs & Symptoms Tracking; as well as solid third party integration features such as Fitbit™, iHealth® and Withings devices.

“We all fill out numerous forms when we visit our doctor, but none of us has our own health story at our fingertips as we have communicated it to physicians verbally, repeatedly throughout our lifetime,” noted Inner Reach Founder and CEO Dr. Constance Fitzpatrick. “There are many other wellness systems out there but none of them have the range and depth of HiGS”, Dr. Fitzpatrick added.

The HiGS technology targets Insurance Companies, Self-insured Corporations, and Government and Veteran’s Groups as part of their educational wellness programs to improve consumers’ health and health awareness.

“We are looking forward to working with our target partners so they can participate in the ‘power of our patent’ enabling the consumer to take control over the quality of their healthcare and manage their preventive self-care”, said Gerald L. Byrnes, the Inner Reach CBDO, Vice President of Strategic Alliances.
