Oxfordshire, December 1st, 2015 - Medelinked has been appointed a Samsung S Health partner and the Medelinked App is now available for Galaxy and other Android devices in Google Play via S Health - http://shealth.samsung.com/
Joining other S Health partners such as Cigna, Nike and Virgin Pulse, as well as existing Medelinked partners iHealth and Your MD, Medelinked now provides Samsung S Health Android app users with one place to manage their own and their family’s health and peace of mind that if they need urgent medical treatment at home or abroad, their secure medical history can be quickly and safely accessed and shared from their Samsung or other Android mobile device.
Record, connect and share
Medelinked enables individuals to record a range of medical details including allergies, conditions, immunisations, medications and tests and the ability to store clinical standard DICOM MRI scans and x-rays to complete their health profile as well as storing insurance and other documentation.
Using Medelinked individuals are also able to create personal and family health profiles online that are secure, locate healthcare specialists and connect and share their health records with their network of trusted health partners and providers (including doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, trainers, insurers, clinical researchers).
Managing all health data in one place helps individuals securely track, monitor and improve their health state, ensuring their latest health data is accessed and enabling the provision of the best possible care, keeping individuals in control of their own health.
Medelinked Secure Cloud
Patients’ medical records are held securely using the Medelinked Health Cloud system. The user has sole control over the information that is stored and whether they wish any healthcare individual or organisation to view any part of their medical history.
The customer can also choose any information they would like to store in a password-protected Emergency Records area, which a chosen family member or colleague can immediately access in the event of an emergency.
Samsung S Health
Samsung launched S Health, which provides users with interactive and easy-to-use health management functions, on the Google Play store earlier this year. It supports Samsung Galaxy and all other Android devices running Android 4.4 KitKat and above.
S Health also enables seamless connection with Samsung Gear wearables as well as Android measurement and management devices from vendors including Bontrager, iSENS, OneTouch, Polar and SD.
Built-in sensors in the Samsung Galaxy and Gear devices help track heart rate, steps, walking, running, cycling, hiking, sports, sleep, food, water, caffeine, weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and Sp02 so that users can easily get a comprehensive overview of their health and fitness status using S Health. It can set fitness goals and provide charts outlining daily progress, with the app providing useful tips along the way.
S Health also supports over 70 languages, including English, French, and Chinese.
Front and centre of the Android ecosystem
Ian Gallifant, Medelinked founder and CEO, says: "We are now seeing a dramatic shift in healthcare - individuals have a heightened interest in their own wellbeing and are increasingly interacting with personal technology to manage their lives.
It starts with such health information being stored in an easily accessible way and provides users with the ability to add to their records and share information easily with the medical providers they locate and choose, to ensure the best advice is given based on previous history, wherever they are around the world.
This collaboration with Samsung means Medelinked is now front and centre of the Android ecosystem, bringing together the S Health platform and a host of sensors and devices to ensure personal, portable electronic health records are the way forward for improved healthcare and better outcomes in the future.”
The Medelinked App is available via Samsung S Store, from Google Play for Android devices and from the App Store for iOS devices including iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
