PositiveID said that the new Health Link, which is now live, will be interoperable with Microsoft HealthVault and Google Health, as well as numerous electronic medical records systems in use throughout the country.
Health Link connects patients to a multitude of customised material such as personalised health education and online connectivity to caregivers. Through reminders and alerts that can be tailored to suit an individual’s unique circumstances, members are reminded of important actions and receive suggestions to better manage their health. It includes everything from refilling prescriptions on time, appointment reminders, drug interaction warnings, and tips for preventative actions.
Scott Silverman, chairman and CEO of PositiveID, said: “Our Health Link personal health record will put consumers in charge of their health information, enabling them to manage all of their health data from one centralised, interoperable location. Health Link’s partnership with FIS will give patients the ability to connect to their healthcare providers, pharmacies, caretakers, and even their medical devices.”
