ICUcare Makes Health Records Universally Accessible

One of the major issues currently facing healthcare is patient medical health records not being accessible and transferable between multiple care settings. These Personal Health Records (PHR) are maintained in different ways, some locations opting for a stand-alone system while others are integrated with various commercially available Electronic Health Record/Electronic Medical Record (EHR/EMR) or Hospital Information System (HIS) solutions that may or may not be compatible with one another.

A new offering launched by ICUcare, called MyeMHR, solves this problem so that medical record data can be used by any care providers at any time and under any circumstances in order to provide optimal treatment. More specifically the MyeMHR system relies on a Smart Card, also known as a Common Access Card (CAC), used by the U.S. Military and a few federal agencies to authenticate the transfer of a patient’s medical history between two facilities/locations, which operate on either a common or disparate Electronic Records-based System.

MyeMHR allows users to generate, upload and send a comprehensive set of medical information in compliance with CCD/CDA/C-CDA interoperability standards. The system transmits the data from its cloud-based host system to a Smart Card before it can be carried to the receiving care provider, who then can open and view the data. As the care provider performs his duties, relevant data can then be uploaded back into the system and parsed into the patient’s medical records. Care providers can transmit all sorts of data, including text and imaging as well as lab and radiology results.

ICUcare’s solution promises to revolutionize the level of security and accessibility available for medical records and allow care providers to be better prepared than ever before when working with patients. The system also presents positive implications for the health insurance industry by virtually eliminating the possibility of duplicate tests or instances of multiple patients using a single insurance card.

The centralization of information is vital to any aspect of society, and medical records should be no different. Care providers and consumers can learn more at
