Forms part of a clear multi-stage integrated and connected digital pathway for patients and medical professionals to engage
Medelinked, an online health platform for healthcare engagement and management, now features the Medelinked Symptom Checker integrated as part of the Medelinked mobile health app for Android and iOS.
The Medelinked Symptom Checker is also now offered via a single aggregated open API as part of the Medelinked Partner Development Programme for integration in third party products and services.
Medelinked Symptom Checker is the first step on the complete primary care pathway enabled by the Medelinked App. Based on the medical symptoms entered into the Medelinked Symptom Checker, it tells the patient what possible diseases they may have. It then directs them to more medical information, lists the appropriate doctor to contact for further clarification and enables the patient to use features such as Medelinked Snapshot and Medelinked Timeline to ensure the doctor is fully informed of the patient’s health state before any face-to-face or virtual consultation.
It also enables patients to communicate securely efficiently and effectively with healthcare professionals by via email, voice, text, video and instant messaging at any stage in the Pathway. This gives them real time interaction for faster and more effective consultations, recommendations and review as well as preventing unnecessary appointments that could be dealt with remotely.
The Partner Development Programme is based on the Medelinked Health Cloud that provides the infrastructure, including aggregated open APIs and SDKs, for partner, provider and pharma organisations to quickly build and deploy digital and m-health apps and services.
The programme is designed to accelerate the global development and adoption of medical, wellness and fitness apps, devices and sensors, by healthcare consumers and services. It allows developers to take advantage of Medelinked’s decade of experience in the m-health marketplace and the ever-expanding Medelinked ecosystem of already connected wearables, healthcare and commercial applications.
Health records may be displayed by Medelinked Health Snapshot, which can be displayed on a PC, Apple Mac or any iOS or Android tablet or smartphone, enables both doctor and patient to use the Medelinked Partner Health Portal to be partners in health management.
Medelinked Health Snapshot supplies an easy and quick to read and interpret single common graphical view crucial to supporting current health state information numbers such as: blood glucose and cholesterol levels; calorie intake; weight; waist size; exercise levels and blood pressure as well as featuring contacts details and space for the patient to describe their symptoms and wellness.
Meanwhile, the Medelinked Personal Health Timeline allows doctors and healthcare professionals to get a rapid overview of their patient or client’s history, including medical reports, records, messages, x-rays and DICOM scans. All are presented in a simple, clear, linear and familiar social timeline manner increasing the time doctors and healthcare professional have to focus on their patients and clients.
As part of connecting, communicating and collaborating securely in real time with all of their patients and clients that have a Medelinked health account, doctors and health professionals can also receive documents and health partner share requests from existing Medelinked patient and client members, enabling them to connect into their network.
CEO, Ian Gallifant, commented: ”With the integration of Medelinked Health Checker and release of the Medelinked Health Checker aggregated open API the digital health revolution has taken another step forward. There is now a clear multi-stage integrated and connected digital pathway not only for people to take control of their health but for patients and medical professionals to engage in the most efficient and effective way from initial diagnosis through to treatment, so improving quality of care delivery and outcomes.”
