Patientory is a healthcare platform that combines medical history with health information from records and wearables. Patients can access all their health data and share it with healthcare professionals of their choice.
As advancements are made in health and medical tech, our ability to gather health data grows massively. However, most people have their health information spread across numerous locations and applications. For example, they may have medical records at various healthcare organisations, plus several apps and wearables that track healthcare data. Having all of this information available in one place allows healthcare teams to provide accurate treatments while making it easier to monitor changes over time.
Patientory noticed the importance of a universal, secure health records platform which prompted the development of their digital solution in 2015. The Atlanta-based healthtech startup created a secure and compliant platform that provides patients with easy access to their own medical records.
Patients can integrate all their current digital wellness products. The healthcare platform monitors statistics provided by the other apps and wearables and displays them on the patient’s dashboard. The data may include daily step counts, temperature, heart rate, and weight.
Patients can use the app to share their complete medical and health history with their doctor as the technology provides a secure blockchain link across different hospitals and clinics. The company compares itself to a bridge, providing a connection across various electronic health records (EHRs). Patientory has many tools to make communication between patients and doctors more efficient, including easy referrals, text chat, reminder automation, and scheduling.
Users pay for Patientory’s digital platform through their cryptocurrency called PTOY. An account is provided for free with 10Mb of storage. Users can pay a specified number of PTOY per month depending on the amount of storage they require for their medical records and health data. For example, a 3GB/month plan costs 8 PTOY.
The ease of access to a patient’s complete medical history will empower patients to control their health while providing healthcare providers with all the information they need to improve wellbeing, a vision also shared by Patients Know Best in the UK.
