WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The GW Medical Faculty Associates, the largest physician-led multi-specialty practice in metro Washington and nationally regarded leader in Health IT, has selected the Jardogs FollowMyHealth™ Universal Health Record (UHR) to provide community based 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.
"With our active patient base, it's not enough to have a product that integrates with a single vendor's Electronic Health Record—we needed a solution that allows our patients to control their health information and access their MFA physicians from anywhere in the world," said Steve Badger, CEO of The GW Medical Faculty Associates. "FollowMyHealth™ provides a unified point of access for patients to interact with their providers and manage their health, regardless of what EHR system they may encounter anywhere in the world."
"In addition to the impressive level of functionality offered by FollowMyHealth™ which would propel us towards meeting some of the basic meaningful use requirements," added Praveen Toteja, CIO of The GW Medical Faculty Associates, "we were also drawn towards the benefits realized by its architecture, such as the ability to scale effortlessly to any size patient population, the fact that it requires no additional infrastructure at our location, and its price point which is considerably less than other products on the market."
"The GW Medical Faculty Associates was our first beta client and provided valuable feedback to us during the product development cycle," said Jim Hewitt, CEO of Jardogs. "The MFA continues to prove its commitment to cutting edge technologies."
