drchrono: onpatient to replace Google Health January 1st, 2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Google's decision to discontinue Google Health will go into effect January 1st, 2013, permanently removing access for all existing Google Health users. drchrono, the company providing Free Electronic Health Records to physicians on the iPad, has created a seamless replacement for Google Health.  "We're committed to the idea of giving patients control of their health data and being able to manage this data from doctors and other sources in one place," explained drchrono Cofounder and CEO, Michael Nusimow.

Today drchrono officially released onpatient, allowing users to create a personal health record from their Google Health data.  This record can be linked to drchrono's free Electronic Health Record platform, a platform currently being used by over 35,000 physicians. "Giving patients access to their health records and allowing them to share this data directly with their physicians corresponds with our long term goal," Nusimow discussed.  With 1.5 million personal records created before the public launch, onpatient is easily taking over where Google Health left off.

The primary difference between drchrono onpatient and Google Health is that "onpatient is focused on creating a unique mobile healthcare experience for individuals," explained drchrono Cofounder and COO, Daniel Kivatinos.  "A focus on mobile devices also allows for better doctor-patient interaction.  For example, a patient can take advantage of the picture and video capabilities from an iPhone and share this with a physician in a HIPAA-compliant manner to monitor progress of a condition or issue.  Allowing patients to easily track their medical information makes an individual more aware and accountable for their own health."  

Like Google Health, drchrono is bridging partnerships within the healthcare industry.  One partnership is with iHealth, a company that provides FDA-approved devices such as the iHealth blood pressure cuff and scale for iPhone, devices that can be used from home. "iHealth is committed to making it convenient for doctors and patients to easily share health information," said Adam Lin, General Manager at iHealth Labs, Inc. "This partnership with drchrono's onpatient personal medical record will make it as simple for patients to share information with their doctor as it is to manage their wellbeing with iHealth's mobile devices."

A personal health record connecting to devices like iHealth's and utilizing mobile applications like iOS Passbook make it easier for patients to keep track of their health.  "Passbook is game changing to healthcare; it allows a user to enter, collect, and present data to their doctors all through their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch," further noted Kivatinos.  "Our end goal is to remove paper from the doctor-patient relationship, and this is another step in that direction."  With onpatient, fumbling with medical forms and searching through paper records is a thing of the past.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
