ChartSpan is bringing its personal health records app to the Android platform. Originally an iPhone exclusive, the application landed in Apple’s AppStore in 2014, and in less than two months became the most downloaded iPhone and iPad medical app in the United States.
ChartSpan is a free, encrypted and secure, allowing patients to control and centralize their entire family’s healthcare information and records from their mobile devices. The service gives patients the ability to create personal medical profiles, request records from physicians, send records to anyone, as well as store and maintain electronic copies of their healthcare records, including immunization, medical, dental, vision, prescription, medication, x-rays and lab results.
ChartSpan can convert paper healthcare records to digital data, without manual data entry included.ChartSpan can convert paper healthcare records to digital data, without manual data entry included. Records can be requested from any doctor through ChartSpan with just a few taps; and on a mobile device, users can import their records by connecting directly to a provider’s portal, importing from BlueButton+, uploading an email attachment or by taking a picture of the record. The application then extracts the data and populates the user’s personal electronic database where it is stored and available to the user at any time. Users can create more than one profile and centralize records for their entire family using their smartphones. Records can be searched by any keyword.
“Patients have waited for more than a decade for providers to deliver on the promise of “interoperability,” said ChartSpan CEO & cofounder Jon-Michial Carter. “We, at ChartSpan, got tired of waiting and decided to build technology that would empower patients to manage their own electronic healthcare records.”
