The App will provide mobile connectivity with over 800,000 healthcare providers
NAPLES, Fla., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB:HLYK) today announced the launch of its mobile app for iPhone that connects patients (users/members) with their healthcare providers. The app allows members to access their HealthLynked profile and medical information while on the go, eliminating redundant paperwork and the need to carry physical medical records and insurance cards to office visits.
Patients’ medical records can be uploaded to their personal, secure cloud storage via image capture, eFax, or Application Programming Interface (“API”) with participating Electronic Health Records (“EHRs”). Once a record is uploaded, users have complete control of who can access their medical information and the length of time each healthcare provider has access to which records.
Users may also link to other family members, like elderly parents, and access medical information via a two-way authentication process called “Lynking”. This allows healthcare surrogates acting as caregivers to closely monitor and participate in their healthcare decisions.
In addition to the storing of Personal Health Record (“PHR”) features of the HealthLynked network, the mobile app allows for easy scheduling of appointments for over 800,000 healthcare providers throughout the US. Location services allow users to select providers and filter results by geo location, gender, zip code, in-network or out-of-network services and medical specialty.
For a Doctor, the app serves as a complete medical record for patients, working in conjunction with the provider’s existing EHR. Physicians gain real-time access to more complete medical information of their patients allowing them to make better medical decisions and avoid medical errors.
“What makes the app unique is its simple user interface and dashboard that facilitates the patient to control access to all their medical information. The app’s interactive interface has all the essential search, sorting filters, and user managed settings, making it possible for users to better manage their healthcare, connect to their providers, and assure their information is up-to-date. More complete medical information and timely access directly translate into better healthcare.”
Michael Dent M.D. CEO
The app is currently available on iOS, is compatible with iOS version 10.13 or later, and can be best viewed on iPhone 6 and above. It is available on Apple’s App Store for free. To download, visit: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/healthlynked/id1389786960?ls=1&mt=8
