Naples, FL, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), a global healthcare network focused on the care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies connecting doctors, patients and medical data, today announced that is has completed the development of its data integration with athenahealth, Inc. that provides patients with easy access to their medical records.
HealthLynked’s Application Programming Interface (API) with athenahealth’s EMR will allow patients to request their health data from connected practices, thus enabling patients to keep track of their health information and take ownership over the sharing of their medical data. Patients who enter an initial request will have their identity verified by the participating practice using HealthLynked’s practice portal. Practices will be able to onboard quickly using athenahealth’s existing integration marketplace.
The integration works by leveraging athenahealth’s extensive API to provide data that is typically only available to health plans and health information exchanges. Patients can access information such as medications, diagnoses, lab results, vitals, and appointment history in their HealthLynked patient record. Patients will be charged a small fee for each record request.
athenahealth is one of the top EMRs in the country with over 160,000 healthcare provider users and 153 million patient records across 110 medical specialties. athenahealth offers a cloud-based revenue cycle solution geared towards large, multi-physician groups and hospitals. athenahealth also caters to small and individual practices and was awarded Best in Klas Small Practice Ambulatory EMR/PM in 2020.
HealthLynked CEO, Dr. Michael Dent, stated, “Integration with athenahealth allows many of our patient members the ability to easily access their medical information and have their records available to all their healthcare providers. We will be deploying the integration in some of our clinical sites and we are excited to now offer this service to our existing patient members. Patients should be able to easily gain access to their medical information and share this with the healthcare providers they choose. Timely access to medical records will help improve treatment and reduce costly delays in care.”
