DrOwl's Medical Tech Platform Allows Medicare and Medicaid Patients Access to their Medical Records in a New Way

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- DrOwl, a medical technology platform built on patented technology, announced today the launch of a new platform designed to allow Medicare and Medicaid patients to access, organize, search, and share their digital medical records on demand.

Most people have medical records in numerous hospitals, doctors' offices, and health clinics. These "traditional", compartmentalized medical record systems, silo the information away from the patient. Gaining access to these records is often difficult, and sharing information was challenging, until now.
The HIPAA-compliant DrOwl platform is offering a free tool for CMS (Medicare/Medicaid) patients to help understand their medical records. Every CMS (Medicare/Medicaid) Patient can sign in to DrOwl for free and bring in their medical records. DrOwl combines the patient's medical record data, with proprietary AI and machine learning, to create a unique Patient Snapshot, as well as a Patient Portal which is in easy-to-understand language personalized to each patient's medical conditions. A Personal Health Search Engine is also created for the patient to search the information in their patient portal that is unique to them. Medicare/Medicaid patients can easily read and research their medical conditions and medications in a physician-approved, trusted environment.

Patients can easily share their DrOwl patient portal with doctors, caregivers, or family members. Family members can help participate in the care of their loved ones and understand their conditions and medications in a new way.

"Being a caregiver for my mom for many years, I have a deep understanding of the challenges that patients and their caregivers face every day when it comes to accessing and understanding medical records and health conditions. DrOwl was created to give people control over their medical records and an easy way to help them understand their conditions," said Arvind Raichur, CEO, and Co-Founder of DrOwl.

DrOwl is also rolling out telemedicine services in select areas. But the DrOwl Telemedicine platform is different from what has traditionally existed in telemedicine platforms. Patients can "chat in-app" with medical providers or participate in a video call with a physician with the click of a button, in real-time. The DrOwl telemedicine providers have access to the patient's medical records on DrOwl including the Patient Snapshot, Patient Portal, and Personal Health Search Engine. This access to the medical records of the patients allows the DrOwl Telemedicine providers a clear snapshot of the patient's medical history. This can lead to more efficient medical care.

Users of DrOwl can involve their loved ones in their care in a new way. Patients can add caregivers or family members to their telemedicine visits, as needed, so that the people who help to take care of them can be a part of important medical conversations, regardless of their location or time zone.
DrOwl users will have ongoing access to 100's of physicians, including infectious disease specialists, hospitalists, generalists, and nurses, beginning with areas in Florida, with other locations coming online very shortly.

The platform also syncs with known wearable health technologies (e.g. Fitbit, Apple Health, etc.) and updates the Patient Portal for things like heart rate, steps, and more. This helps add valuable information to the patient's medical history.

Dr. Krishan Nagda, MD, the President of DrOwl, said, "It is my firm belief that the more involved the patient, their family, and caregivers, the better the outcome for the patient. We built DrOwl as a simple-to-use technology to increase the patient's engagement in their own healthcare. When patients are informed and educated about their health, they have the power to make more informed decisions."

The technology also includes a tool for users to understand their risk factors for COVID-19. Users can see if they are in a group that needs to take extra precautions during outbreaks of infectious diseases.
