Global Health Voyager to Offer HIPPA-Compliant Medical Records Storage to Medical TouristsGlobal Health Voyager Partners With Janus to Provide Medical Travelers and Domestic Patients Secure Records Transfer (March 20, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/12 -- Medical tourism facilitator Global Health Voyager (OTCBB: GLHV) has announced a new data partnership to provide medical tourists with HIPPA-compliant records storage. Through an exclusive contract with Janus Medical Systems, Global Health Voyager will offer its patients and members the ability to store their entire family's medical records in one secure place. This new service is an extension of Global Health Voyager's offerings to patients who wish to exercise more control over their healthcare options. The software is market-ready and the Company expects to make it available to patients within weeks.
The primary concern is the security and confidentiality of users' information. All medical data will be stored with state-of-the-art security and encryption technology to protect users' data. Records are stored on servers which are housed in HIPAA compliant data centers in the USA. Each account is secured by a unique combination of User ID and password.
In addition to passwords and data encryption, data access is protected through multiple levels of network security to prevent unauthorized access and to help protect the privacy and integrity of customer data. Global Health Voyager employees do not have access to any information placed into the system by our customers. The service will be offered for free to patients with qualifying medical procedures and on a scaled pricing model for member patients.
"The firm specializes in matching medical patients with accredited foreign hospitals offering standardized surgical procedures at lower cost. These can range from minor cosmetic surgery to less expensive fertility treatments, dental surgery or hip, knee and heart valve replacement," said Ali Moussavi, CEO of Global Health Voyager.
The new alliance between GLHV and Janus, a data storage provider, adds convenience and extra security to the transfer of client medical records. "You can log procedures, meds, allergies, doctors, history, lab results -- all in a very user-friendly and organized format. Records are shared easily in whole or part with anyone you choose by supplying a temporary password and can be done from a computer or smartphone. In addition to records, images such as x-rays and scans can be stored as well."
He notes that one membership allows medical records for an entire family to be stored at no additional cost.
"We continually bring top-rated medical facilities into our worldwide network," he adds. "And while the attraction of medical tourism centers around medical care and cost savings and quality care, we are continuing on our pledge to add more value to the patient experience and access to secure storage of personal and family records is a key element of what we are offering our patients."
Industry figures show steady growth in medical tourism worldwide as patients take greater control over their medical decisions, says Moussavi. "They are aware of available domestic and international options -- and in many cases after weighing the cost, recovery time, and quality of service it clearly benefits them to have a procedure done elsewhere."
"We're here to broaden those medical choices and to make savings possible."
