Healow integrates patient medical records from multiple EHR systems

eClinicalWorks has created a new business called Healow (Health and Online Wellness).

The $25 million investment is aimed to better connect patients, doctors, and medical data.

They started with the Healow mobile app.

The app is built on the back of eClinicalWorks’s Join the Network.

This is a secure system that allows the transfer of medical data to and from EHR systems designed by eClinicalWorks as well as their competitors.

Healow uses this ability to allow patients access to their medical records as well as to manage their own healthcare.

The app allows the patient to integrate the data from all of their healthcare providers. With this kind of access, the patient can get a full view of their medical history in one place.

In addition, the data can be used to help you manage your medication and appointments by setting up reminders. It allows you to enter notes into the app about things the patient would like to discuss with their physician, and it even allows for a secure way to send messages to the physician.

If their physician uses eClinicalWorks’s EHR, the physician can use the app to push data updates into the system as well.

This app is another example of how mobile technology can be used to integrate all the aspects of a patient’s care, improve the doctor-patient relationship, and keep the patient informed about their own healthcare.
