According to the CDC, 82% of adults and 93% of children under the age of 18 have had contact with a healthcare professional in the past year, and 62% of adults have been to the doctor more than once in that same time. Managing these health records isn’t easy, though.
ChartSpan has developed the world’s first, patient-based, interoperable, consumer technology that automates the conversion of all paper healthcare records into electronic healthcare records. It comes in the form of a free iOS app that allows consumer to request, organize, and send its health records (medical, dental, vision, immunizations, prescriptions) from a smartphone, with no manual data entry required.
ChartSpan uses three layers of encryption for all data, making sure your personal health records are virtually impossible to access by third parties.ChartSpan works by simply taking a picture of a healthcare record or importing it from email or electronic fax. Then, the app extracts data and populates each user’s electronic, personal database, while enabling the ability to manage records on the phone for entire family. Keyword-based record searching is also available.
