Available On iPhone, iPad and Android Devices
DANA POINT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 17, 2015–
SecondOpinionExpert, a leading provider of online medical second opinions, has expanded its unique platform by launching an electronic health record mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
The mobile app provides access to SecondOpinionExpert’s eHealth Records service, allowing patients to easily view previously uploaded medical records and images, as well as update their personal health information using a smartphone or tablet. The app creates a comprehensive and personalized picture of patient health information that can conveniently be shared with any healthcare provider, family member or other individual chosen by the patient. Further, physicians receiving this information can insert their remarks or recommendations directly into the eHealth Record for the patient to review.
“This app increases patients control over medical information and records. Unlike other personal health records apps, ours allows patients to not only easily share medical records with their physicians and family, but also receive physician feedback directly through the app,” said Mohan Ananda, SecondOpinionExpert’s Chief Executive Officer.
SecondOpinionExpert’s eHealth Records app is completely secure, HIPAA-compliant and free of charge. The app includes a high-resolution image viewer that is equivalent to the image resolution used in radiological diagnostic interpretations. The app’s features are presented in a visually attractive and easy-to-use interface.
The app also enhances SecondOpinionExpert’s Second Opinion service. Through its desktop website, www.secondopinionexpert.com, patients can upload relevant medical records, answer a specialty-specific health questionnaire and obtain a medical second opinion from a panel of board-certified Physician Specialists within 48 hours. Additionally, health information entered via the eHealth Records app can be used to obtain a Second Opinion.
“The ability to obtain a medical second opinion has long been restricted by one’s ability to find a qualified physician and willingness to travel, sometimes significant distances. Our service enables patients to receive an expert second opinion from the comfort of their own homes,” said Ananda. “All you need now is a computer and an Internet connection.”
The app is available for download free of charge from the App Store and Google Play.
