Personal health management app developer Healthspek is teaming-up with personalized health information provider Medivizor so that Healthspek users can get personalized health information in an easily understandable format. This information might include summaries of personally relevant cutting-edge research, matching clinical trials, updated guidelines, evidence-based lifestyle tips, and more.
Healthspek users will get summaries of personally relevant cutting-edge research, matching clinical trials, updated guidelines, evidence-based lifestyle tips, and more.“People who have become seriously ill or suffer from ongoing medical conditions often become ‘chronic web researchers,’ but the process of finding relevant, trustworthy and understandable information online is extremely ineffective and inefficient,” said Medivizor Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder Ronen Keinan. “Our mission is to improve the lives of people with serious medical conditions and those who care for them by providing truly relevant and personalized information to help them manage their day-to-day care.”
Healthspek was launched in 2013 as a free iPad app that allows users to track, collect and safely disseminate personal healthcare information. Users can securely manage their medical records, immunizations, conditions, providers and insurance, all with the swipe of a finger. Parents and guardians can include their family members under the same account. Users have 24/7 access to their entire health record and can also grant access to their care providers. A physical carry card includes users’ critical health information in case of emergency.
Medivizor’s solution combines patent-pending technology, medical expertise, and the wisdom of the crowd to filter and summarize all current reliable information to just that which relates to individual Healthspek users based on a host of individual criteria. As the latest of over a dozen user-selected “speks,” or tools, the Medivizor functionality will be rolled out in May.
