The health care services industry is in the midst of a technological revolution, as innovators introduce advanced technology to consolidate and simplify medical records for patients and other parties. The implementation of a wide range of analytic data solutions that include software, hardware, business consulting and intelligence, data storage and integration and more, aims to reduce cost and administration. Health Care stocks with recent news developments of note include: HemCare Health Services Inc. (OTC: HCRE), athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDRX), WebMD Health Corp. (NASDAQ: WBMD), Cerner Corp (NASDAQ: CERN).
HemCare Health Services Inc. (OTC: HCRE) "the Company" is pleased to announce the launch of RecordsBank.org, a centralized system for patients, lawyers and insurers, to retrieve and access medical records online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The medical record bottleneck, despite the widespread availability of secure electronic data transfer, most Americans' medical information is stored on paper-in filing cabinets at various medical offices, or in boxes and folders in patients' homes. When that medical information is shared between providers, it happens by mail, fax or-most likely-by patients themselves, who frequently carry their records from appointment to appointment. Management believes that our centralized online portal can greatly improve the completeness of patient's records, (which can have a big effect on care), as past history, current medications and other information is jointly reviewed during visits.
For patients and third-party requestors, obtaining paper medical records is a costly proposition with frequent status calls, slow processing times, and high administrative and scanning costs. The RecordsBank portal eliminates many of the inefficiencies of paper-based release of information practices and clears the bottleneck, creating a fluid exchange of information.
