SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorial Health System, one of the leading healthcare organizations in Illinois, has selected the Jardogs FollowMyHealth™ Universal Health Record (UHR) to provide online access to its 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.
"When we looked at patient access at a community level, we wanted a solution that allows patients one comprehensive view of their health information from multiple disconnected organizations," says Dr. David Graham, CIO of Memorial Health System. "The only solution that would truly aggregate data at the community level and provide a seamless point of access to that data was the Jardogs' FollowMyHealth™ UHR."
"It is great to see the community effect take hold with respect to providers in Central Illinois wanting to provide a common patient experience, said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs. "Because FollowMyHealth™ allows patients to easily search for and connect with those organizations using our solution, it encourages all healthcare providers in a given community to participate, which ultimately benefits both patients and providers."
