Giffen Solutions, Inc. Introduces Groundbreaking New Free App, MedXVault, for Consumers to Manage Their Health CareMedXVault Is a HIPAA-Compliant and Secure Portal for Centralizing Medical Information (March 22, 2012)
LIVINGSTON, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/22/12 -- Giffen Solutions, Inc. (www.medxcom.com), a market leading secure health information network company founded by physicians, announced today the release of its revolutionary new Free App, MedXVault, a patient portal and iPhone App that allows patients not only to store and continuously update their Personal Health Profiles but also to communicate directly with their doctors. MedXVault is used in conjunction with MedXCom, a secure, HIPAA-compliant, web-based communications and health information network platform designed to improve physician and patient communication and enhance the quality of health care through innovative technologies.
"We realize that in today's society, patient information and communication are paramount," says Dr. Michael Nusbaum, co-founder of Hamilton Scientific, a 1998 web based EMR start up which was sold in 2011, and CEO of Giffen Solutions, Inc., which developed both MedXCom and MedXVault. "MedXVault makes pertinent and critical information available to physicians when it is needed most: at the time of patient contact. This enhances a patient's quality of care and improves the patient's experience while safeguarding against any medical errors."
MedXVault allows patients to download the free app to their smartphones and securely manage all aspects of their health profiles such as medications, allergies, medical conditions, past surgical histories, past hospitalizations and immunizations, and contact and insurance information as well as the ability to upload lab, radiology, and other important reports and information securely while granting access to the appropriate doctor on their health team. According to Dr. Nusbaum, "The difference with MedXVault, compared with other patient portals, is that with MedXVault the patient owns and manages their health care information." He further states, "Using this approach, information from multiple sources is centralized in one complete medical record, which is owned by the patient and in which the patient grants access to his or her doctors."
In MedXVault, all of a patient's medical information is stored securely in one place. Patients can also notify their doctor instantly of important information such as being present in an emergency room via the MedXVault status update. MedXVault also has news feeds, the ability to create and join support groups, obtain reviews of the latest medical literature, post pictures and receive medical information from their health team.
"MedXVault is truly a revolution in the way patients and their physicians share information," says Dr. Nusbaum. "It provides a new level of communication, while centralizing the health information of a patient, which before MedXVault stood static on multiple doctors' EMRs, in their offices, where no one else could get access. MedXVault also allows patients to take charge of their personal health and empowers their doctors with access to the information necessary when it is needed most."
