With the digital revolution driving the NHS to increase its use of mobile technologies and become paperless by 2020, there has never been a better time to move your healthcare online.
Going online can enable you to take responsibility for your health and that of your family and become an active member of your health support network, the key to improved health outcomes and a better quality of life.
Medelinked can help you do just that today. It is a secure way to build and manage your health profile, enabling you to share and discuss your wellness information securely with your trusted healthcare providers, family and friends.
Medelinked does this by keeping your all your health information secure in one place. Accessible at any time by smartphone, tablet, PC or Apple Mac, you can be sure that your records are available whenever you – and others with your permission in an emergency – need them, 24 hours a day, wherever you are in the world.
Here are some of the ways a Medelinked account puts you in control of your health.
Create your own health profile by collating information from all the different health professionals you interact with as well as connected health applications and devices using easy to view and understand Medelinked Snapshots and Timelines .
Medelinked enables you to manage and update your health profile to include your health numbers, medical details including allergies, conditions, immunisations, medications and tests and store clinical standard DICOM MRI scans, x-rays, insurance and other documentation.
Connect with Health Providers
Using Medelinked you can research, locate, engage, introduce and automatically connect you, your family members and carers with healthcare providers, building your personal healthcare network from professionals listed in NHS Choices and other healthcare provider databases.
Once connected, you can arrange face-to-face consultations or receive health advice in real time and chat by secure email, voice, text, video and instant messaging as well as accessing telemedecine and other remote services.
Share Your Records
By sharing Snapshots of your data, you could help your doctor or another healthcare provider improve the quality of your consultations, understanding your problem before you meet as well as prevent unnecessary face-to-face appointments that could be dealt with remotely.
By connecting your favourite health devices such as smart watches, fitness trackers and health monitors, data can be uploaded straight into your profile, safe and ready for sharing with your support network.
The Medelinked wellness facility enables you to keep track and monitor your weight, BMI, physical activity, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels. As well as ensuring your health readings are up to date, you can choose to specify thresholds for readings, alerting your registered health providers when values exceed lower or upper limits.
Medelinked Simply Puts You in Control of You and Your Family’s Health
Medelinked is a great way to look after you and the people you love because better outcomes result when we know our own state of health and can talk with confidence to the people that care for us.
So, if you want to actively track and manage your health and fitness, are a parent concerned about your loved one’s wellbeing or have to manage a chronic or acute medical condition, Medelinked simply puts you in control of you and your family’s health.
