Doctors expend considerable effort retrieving patient records from other hospitals, as patients frequently fail to provide enough information to easily identify their previous physicians. This is especially problematic in underserved communities where people lack consistent access to a primary healthcare provider. Once contact is established, the transfer of patient data is hampered by the proliferation of incompatible EMR systems across hospitals.
Healthcare Unlocked bridges the communication deficit between hospitals, enabling more efficient, integrated, and coordinated care. Our smartphone app provides doctors with instant access to a summarized patient history, including past doctor's appointments (complete with contact details), prescription history, tests performed, chronic ailments, and drug allergies. Armed with this information, doctors can provide timely care with greater confidence, engineering better patient outcomes and reduced costs across the entire healthcare system.
