Integra Global Launches online personal health records: Sponsored contribution
As a part of their cover, customers are able to manage their own medical records.
Medical and insurance records are truly portable with the Integra Global electronic health record account, powered by Zaptag. The online system allows customers to keep all their medical records in one secure place, uploaded securely on one portable USB Smart medical card.
The flexibility of the system allows individuals to manage their account to meet their needs and lifestyle. For instance, they can securely collate their medical information such as immunisations, allergies, blood group, medications and conditions, as well as being able to record and track personal medical information such as blood pressure, sugar level and weight.
Registered scan centres, physiotherapists and private doctors can also post health information directly to their customers’ secure online medical record. Records can be sent straight from the doctor’s desktop to a patient’s online Integra Global account, at a touch of a button. In this way, consultation notes, images and scans are immediately available.
Juggling between two or three different countries, along with the multiple ways of practicing healthcare, demands specialised services. Integra Global meets these demands with a comprehensive health plan that gives customers access to centres of medical excellence around the world – and all at the touch of a button.
“Many of our members have been on numerous expat assignments and have physicians in several different locations,” says Philip Catterton Managing Director of Integra Global. “Trying to keep track of health records was a nightmare for them. Now, our health plan members have an innovative tool that enables the management of their health records with medical providers located worldwide such as in the United States, China or the U.K.”
The added functionality of the Zaptag account makes the package a lifeline for expatriates and their families when travelling away from their home medical environment and for medical staff to check critical medical information in the event of a medical emergency.
