Medelinked provides a personal health record platform aimed at helping users maintain and view a host of personal health information such as step counts, workouts, and sleep quality. The service offers a mobile app and web dashboard with easy-to-understand graphs and charts to provide a deeper understanding of ongoing fitness levels.
Today, Medelinked announced that they're adding Microsoft Health and the Microsoft Band fitness tracker/smartwatch hybrid device to their list of supported platforms. As the company stated in their press release:
Microsoft Health and Band enable users to collect and view their data about step counts, workouts, and even sleep quality in the mobile app and web dashboard. Vivid, easily-understandable charts help users get to know their current fitness level, and discover changes at a glance.
Integration with Medelinked also provides peace of mind that if they need urgent medical treatment at home or abroad, their secure medical history can be quickly and safely accessed and shared from their iOS or Android mobile device.
Microsoft's fitness- and health-related products and services join Garmin Connect, UP by Jawbone, Samsung S Health, and others in providing integration with Medelinked's services. Data is pulled directly from these partner services and devices and injected directly in the Medelinked's secure cloud platform, to go along with the complete range of health data already maintained in the service such as allergies, conditions, immunizations, and more.
According to Ian Gallifant, Medelinked founder and CEO:
"We are now seeing a dramatic shift in healthcare - individuals have a heightened interest in their own wellbeing and are increasingly interacting with personal technology to manage their lives.
Making a difference starts with such health information being stored in an easily accessible way and providing users with the ability to add to their records and share information easily with the healthcare professionals they locate and choose - to ensure the best advice is given based on previous history, wherever they are around the world.
Adding Microsoft Health and Band to the host of apps, sensors and devices that integrate with Medelinked ensures customers are in control of their health and personal, portable electronic health records are the way forward for improved healthcare and better outcomes in the future.”
As always, we're excited to see more services support Microsoft Health and the Band line of devices. Let us know in the comments if you're a Medelinked customer and will be using the service with your Band or Microsoft Health.
