Jardogs Advances Patient Engagement Platform with FollowMyHealth(TM) v1.5
SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jardogs , a leading provider of patient engagement and health management solutions, has announced the newest release of its flagship product, FollowMyHealth(TM) Universal Health Record.
FollowMyHealth  is a patient engagement solution that combines the value of a personal health record, the power of a patient portal and the connectivity of a health information exchange (HIE). Functionality enhancements for FollowMyHealth version 1.5 lay the groundwork for upcoming Meaningful Use requirements, while markedly expanding patient usability and enhancing the user experience.
"Named 'most-used, best-of-breed portal' by KLAS*, FollowMyHealth is adding significant value to the healthcare delivery process by supplying a solution that exceeds the expectations of both the provider and the patient," said Jim Hewitt, CEO, Jardogs. "Patients overwhelmingly want the type of online access to their health information that FollowMyHealth provides. And with Meaningful Use rules requiring patient portals, providers and organizations are in dire need of a solution that integrates with disparate EHRs to produce one comprehensive health record."
Steve Badger, CEO, The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates added, "With FollowMyHealth, our patients now have a single point of access that lets them communicate and connect with our physicians - anywhere, anytime. It's this type of solution that differentiates us in the market so we can continually provide the technological solutions our patients have come to expect at GWU-Medical Faculty Associates."
FollowMyHealth empowers providers to engage patients so they can access and manage their health and wellness information in a secure, online environment. Accessible by any computer, smartphone or tablet, patients can easily view test results, communicate with physicians, request appointments and prescription refills, pay bills and complete forms prior to a visit - 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
Patients can also keep track of their fitness and well-being with online tools such as wireless scales, blood pressure devices and blood glucose monitors. With FollowMyHealth, a patient can now instantly transmit glucose values to his or her Universal Health Record, while a provider can use that data to better manage a patient's course of care. It's this type of combined interaction and access to previously unavailable and actionable clinical data that will help drive higher patient engagement levels and improve overall outcomes.
