PROVO, Utah, Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Central Utah Clinic, the largest independent physician group in Utah, has selected the Jardogs FollowMyHealth™ Universal Health Record (UHR) to provide community-based online access to its 250,000 patients.

"Before FollowMyHealth™, the only online interaction patients had with their healthcare providers was through legacy patient portal functionality focused primarily on bill payments, prescription renewal requests, appointment requests, and viewing lab results," said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs.  "FollowMyHealth™ combines the global connectivity and patient management aspects of a personal health record (PHR) with the integration of a patient portal to create the only true UHR."  

"The biggest barrier that patients encounter when trying to use most PHRs out there today is in manually entering and maintaining their personal health information," said Jamie Steck, Director of Information Technology at Central Utah Clinic.  "With FollowMyHealth™, all of the patient's information that is stored in the physician's electronic health record can easily populate and remain synchronized with the patient's UHR. This information can be used by the patient to automatically populate electronic forms sent to them by their physicians in advance of an appointment. This eliminates the need for the patient to manually fill out forms at the doctor's office, simplifying and streamlining the process for both patient and physician.  This functionality will revolutionize the way patients manage their health."
