HUTCHINSON, Kan., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hutchinson Clinic, a multi-specialty ambulatory clinic in central Kansas, has selected the Jardogs FollowMyHealth™ Universal Health Record (UHR) to provide community-based online access to its 225,000 patients.
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.
"As we explored all possibilities for patient portal applications, the primary challenges we wanted to address were the lack of current health information for patients since portions of their care are provided by medical organizations other than ours, and wanting to have consistent, effective communications with our patients," said Bob Davidson, CIO of Hutchinson Clinic. "We found that FollowMyHealth™ stood above others as a comprehensive, well-presented, user-friendly application that was very affordable. The Jardogs team has taken into consideration every aspect of patients' needs to access their health record information, which will help patients inform their providers and improve the quality of care while reducing costs. We value this improved accessibility and communication that FollowMyHealth will bring to our patients."
"We are pleased that Hutchinson Clinic shares our vision for the level of access that patients should have to their health information and in communicating with their physicians, as well as the need to discretely aggregate data across disparate systems into one common repository," said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs.
