Fitness and wellness device users can now track their health, locate healthcare specialists and store securely, safely access and share medical history from their mobile device
Oxfordshire, 8th September 2016 – Medelinked is now integrated with Omron Healthcare Blood Pressure Monitors and Alvita Activity Trackers and Pedometers.* The integration with devices from the heart health and wellness technology market leader ensures that wellness summary data from Omron devices is available in Medelinked to help users better manage their own and their family’s health.
Omron blood pressure monitors are recognised and certified as some of the most accurate available to consumers and are the number one home blood pressure monitor recommended by doctors and pharmacists.
Alvita provides wireless, light-weight and optimised devices that allow users to place them in their pockets or on their body and feel assured that they will accurately track all of their steps towards a healthier lifestyle.
Record, connect and share
Integration with Medelinked provides peace of mind that if Omron device users need urgent medical treatment at home or abroad, their secure medical history can be quickly and safely accessed and shared from their iOS or Android mobile device.
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. It also provides a scalable platform for device manufacturers to add value to their offerings, increase their range of services and deepen customer engagement.
Joins a wide range of other Medelinked integrated devices and services
The Omron devices join a wide range of other Medelinked integrated devices and services such as Microsoft Health and Band, Garmin Connect, UP by Jawbone, Samsung S Health, Nokia/Withings and iHealth, in enabling users to record data directly into their Medelinked health record. Medelinked also enables the inclusion of 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).
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 user 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.
Dramatic shift in healthcare
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.
Making a difference starts with such health information being stored in an easily accessible way and providing users with the ability to add to their records and share information easily with the healthcare professionals they locate and choose - to ensure the best advice is given based on previous history, wherever they are around the world.
Adding Omron blood pressure monitors, activity trackers and pedometers to the host of apps, sensors and devices that integrate with Medelinked ensures customers are in control of their health and that personal, portable electronic health records are the way forward for improved healthcare and better outcomes in the future.”
