myEliteHealth Patient Portal public beta is released
June 14, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsMiami Beach, FL – EliteHealth, one of the industry leaders in patient portal technology has officially launched the public beta version of myEliteHealth v2. This innovative web solution securely connects patients with their physicians via the web, while providing patients with a suite of tools to better manage their healthcare. Over two years in the making, EliteHealth has successfully completed its alpha and private beta testing phases of the project and transitioned its users from its legacy version to the new version 2. This important milestone signifies the move from its testing phase into a publicly available web solution that any patient or physician can now benefit from.
The myEliteHealth project began in May of 2008 with the assistance of web development group Medical Web Experts. The goal of the project was to build a simple tool for patients to securely access their medical record via the web. The project quickly gained popularity and features such as email e-consultations, patient education, prescription refill and appointment requests were inserted. In June of 2009, development began on a new, enhanced version that offers all the features of the first version as well as many additional enhancements. Some of these new features include a health tracker module for patients to track daily vitals such as blood pressure and weight, and a health history module for patients to manage important health information such as current medications, allergies, health conditions and recent surgeries. A partnership with Healthwise was formed to provide members with over 70,000 patient education topics. myEliteHealth v2 also features a team of health coaches available 24/7 for free health advice on topics such as nutrition, weight loss, cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure.
EliteHealth is also actively working on many unique features that will be implemented prior to its official launch in the third quarter of 2010. Some of these features include live video e-consultations, a search tool for finding the best prices on prescription drugs within a geographical radius (US-only), an enhanced medical records browser and interfaces with many of the top EMR software applications.
"It's an extremely exciting time here at EliteHealth as we bring this innovative application to the public eye at a time when its needed most. We know that it will help other physicians to provide better patient care to their patients, just as it has done in our own practice.", says Steven Schnur, MD, co-founder of EliteHealth.MD
