HealthLynked Corp. (HLYK) Digitizes and Streamlines Process of Obtaining Medical Records with New Cutting-Edge Feature Integrated with DocuSign

  • HealthLynked, a leading provider of healthcare technology solutions, recently launched its new online medical record request form, integrated with DocuSign
  • The new feature allows patients to seamlessly and securely request their medical records from doctors’ offices, hospitals, and laboratories with just a few clicks
  • Through the feature, HealthLynked aims to solve inefficiencies and security issues affecting the flow of health information, helping patients share their medical records with their doctors directly
  • The HIPAA, through the Privacy Rule, aims to allow the flow of health information that can help health care providers to provide high-quality health care and to protect the public’s health and well-being

The Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (“Privacy Rule”), issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) to implement the requirement of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) of 1996, aims to, among others, allow the “flow of health information needed to provide and promote high-quality health care and to protect the public’s health and well-being.” It permits crucial uses of health information while protecting the privacy of patients (https://ibn.fm/S9hpp).

However, a 2018 Yale study found that American hospitals complicate the process by which patients access medical records. The study reported that many top hospitals in the country “are making it unduly confusing or expensive for patients to gain access to their own medical records.” This is despite the fact that HIPAA and supporting rules guarantee patients access to their protected information in a timely fashion and in the format the patient wants.

“There were overwhelming inconsistencies in information relayed to patients regarding the personal health information they are allowed to request, as well as the formats and costs of release, both within institutions and across institutions,” YaleNews quoted Carolyn Lye, the first author on the study, as saying (https://ibn.fm/bVpok).

The inconsistencies, inefficiencies, and delays in the record sharing process has been sighted by many as one of the main problems within the healthcare system.  As a result, HealthLynked (OTCQB: HLYK), a leading provider of healthcare technology solutions, has developed, as part of its comprehensive healthcare network, a medical record storage facility designed to solve inefficiencies and data security issues. The company recently launched its new online medical record request form, integrated with DocuSign. This cutting-edge feature is part of the company’s HealthLynked Network. It allows patients to seamlessly request their medical records from doctors’ offices, hospitals, and laboratories with just a few clicks (https://ibn.fm/oBDl2).

Once transmitted, the requested records are automatically uploaded to the patients’ respective HealthLynked Network profiles, allowing patients to easily access their own records virtually as well as quickly and easily share them with health care providers when needed. In this regard, the addition of the records to the patients’ profiles creates a centralized, easily accessible, manageable, and shareable repository of individual and collective health data. According to the company, users of the free package can store up to five records, while paid members enjoy unlimited record storage.

“The development of the online medical record request form is a testament to our commitment to leveraging the latest technology to improve patient care. By digitizing and streamlining the process of obtaining medical records, we are making it more user-friendly and compliant with healthcare regulations. Access to more medical records that patients can share with their doctors directly leads to better, more informed patient care,” said Chris Hall, CTO of HealthLynked.

HealthLynked reports that the integration with DocuSign, a pioneer in electronic signature technology, ensures that all requests are secure and encrypted, safeguarding patient confidentiality. The integration also promotes convenience by providing an easy-to-use method of confirming patients’ identities.

“We are thrilled to offer this new feature to our users. By integrating with DocuSign, we are not only enhancing the efficiency and security of medical record requests but also ensuring compliance with digital health standards. This makes it easier for patients to manage their health information, ultimately leading to better patient care through more comprehensive access to medical records,” conveyed Dr. Michael Dent, CEO of HealthLynked.

The HealthLynked Network is a patient-centric medical network that allows users to store their medical information, receive assistance with medical forms and questions, book appointments with any doctor, access telemedicine services anywhere in the country, chat with a nurse, obtain copies of lab results, co-manage family members’ healthcare, and much more.
