FollowMyHealth™ combines the global connectivity and patient management aspects of a personal health record with the integration of a patient portal to create the only true Universal Health Record.  

"I am pleased to see that Jardogs took the initiative to create the country's first Universal Health Record," said Michael R. McGuire, who outlines in his book A Preliminary Design for A Universal Patient Medical Record how a universal health record can help achieve the goals of more efficient and less costly health care.

"Our FollowMyHealth™ solution provides community-level connectivity for patients and providers in a truly meaningful way," said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs.  "We believe this certification, our use of the Microsoft Windows Azure platform, and the capabilities of our Universal Health Record have created the new standard for patient access solutions."

"The Windows Azure platform makes it easier for software as a service providers like Jardogs to develop and deploy new or existing applications and to scale services as needed," said Jack Hersey, General Manager, United States Public Sector Healthcare and Social Services Group Microsoft. "With the Windows Azure platform, Jardogs will provide customers with real-time access to secure health information at a national level."

"Jardogs has created a secure national infrastructure that allows aggregation of patient data from multiple systems across organizations, communities, and the country, seamlessly communicating that data discretely to healthcare providers via the patients' consent," says Hewitt.

The certification number for the FollowMyHealth™ Universal Health Record, Version 1.0, is CC-1112-395030-1. The product complies with the criteria for Foundational Security and Privacy, meeting certification criteria for: Access Control, Emergency Access, Automatic Log-off, Audit Log, Integrity, Authentication, General Encryption, Encryption when exchanging electronic health information, and Timely Access. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.

"CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products so that companies are now able to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives," said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
