Brownsville, VT (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Health Record Corporation (HRC) announced today that for the first time it is offering its revolutionary MedKaz personal health record system for sale to the public on its web site, medkaz.com. Unlike other systems, it aggregates a patient's lifetime medical record from all their providers on a distinctive flash drive called a MedKaz. It contains the data and patented MedKaz application with which to electronically manage the patient's disparate records. The patient owns and controls it and gives it to their care provider at the point of care.

When the physician logs on, important information is waiting that saves precious time. The physician reads this information, treats the patient, electronically sorts and searches the patient's records as needed to understand the patient's health issues, and updates the patient's MedKaz at the end of the visit (for which they are paid.)

Merle Bushkin, Founder & CEO of HRC, comments: “After extensive testing, we're delighted to make the MedKaz available to all those who want to control their medical records. It equips them to participate in their care decisions and gives them peace of mind knowing that their doctors have their complete medical record in hand when they need it. For care providers, this information is precisely what they need to improve the quality and coordination of care, and reduce its cost. They can read actual progress notes written by their patient's other doctors and make sure their treatment doesn't conflict.

“In most industries such important information would be readily available, but in healthcare it's only available on a patient's MedKaz! Even the newest, most sophisticated electronic medical record (EMR) systems can't share records. The MedKaz not only can; it does!”

About MedKaz and HRC:

The patented MedKaz is a revolutionary system that puts the patient at the center of their care by aggregating their lifetime medical record in one place, owned and controlled by them, where care providers can access them as needed. The MedKaz is the only system that accepts records in all formats from all sources, overcoming record incompatibility; is secure from Internet breaches, easy to use, affordable, and available now; and doesn't require government subsidies or the construction of extensive electronic networks to exchange records. It lives alongside care providers' systems, whether paper or electronic, and fits seamlessly into their established workflow, enabling improved quality and coordination of care, elimination of mistakes and unnecessary testing, and cost reductions. The Medkaz was created and is supported and distributed by Health Record Corporation, based in Brownsville, VT. For more information, please visit http://www.medkaz.com.
