Personal Health Records (PHR) Made Easy and Quick to Start with Medical Records Assistance from Activ Doctors Online
Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 03, 2011
Activ Doctors Online (http://www.activdoctorsonline.com), a web-based Personal Health Record (PHR) and Second Medical Opinion (SMO) service has the solution to one of the most commonly cited obstacles to embracing a Personal Health Record: data entry. Although the majority of Activ Doctors Online PHR members worldwide enter their own information through the easy-to-use secure online portal, a growing number of subscribers are choosing Medical Records Assistance because of its speed and efficiency. ADO offers the highest security and encryption available; the PHR is interoperable and adheres to HIPAA standards.
A July 2011 study by Frost & Sullivan suggests that collecting and entering one’s medical history and information is one of the leading barriers to more widespread consumer adoption of PHRs.
Through its Medical Records Assistance program, Activ Doctors Online collects and uploads medical records into the PHR on members’ behalf. Many subscribers choose this convenient option to save time. The member, through a HIPAA release form, simply authorizes Activ Doctors Online to confidentially gather records from up to five different health providers. This includes medical history, prescriptions, vaccinations, allergies, surgery reports, tests and screenings, exams and more. Activ Doctors Online’s medical personnel then retrieve, scan and upload information into the appropriate sections of the PHR. The fee of $ 75 often equates to a low, single-digit hourly figure that members find cost-efficient. Learn more at http://www.activdoctorsonline.com.
The Frost & Sullivan research also states that although PHR use was estimated at about 7 percent of the U.S. population in 2010, adoption will grow due to increased use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other health technology by providers that will lead to greater awareness of the value of PHR. The report predicts a 33 percent increase in revenue for the market from 2010 to 2015.
