Fitness and wellness device users can now track their health, locate healthcare specialists and store securely, safely access and share medical history from their mobile device

Oxfordshire, 24th July 2017 – Medelinked is now integrated with Google Fit. The integration ensures that fitness summary data from the Google Fit Web app, Android app and Android Wear watch is available in Medelinked to help users manage their own and their family’s health.

Google Fit allows you to effortlessly track any activity. As you walk, run, or cycle throughout the day, your phone or Android Wear watch automatically logs them with Google Fit. You can see real-time stats for your runs, walks, and rides. Google Fit will record your speed, pace, route, elevation, and more so you can stay motivated and on track.

Integration with Medelinked also provides peace of mind that if they need urgent medical treatment at home or abroad, their secure medical history can be quickly and safely accessed and shared from their iOS or Android mobile device.

Record, connect and share

Managing all health data in one place helps individuals securely track, monitor and improve their health state, ensuring their latest health data is accessed and enabling the provision of the best possible care, keeping individuals in control of their own health.

Google Fit joins other Medelinked integrated services such as Qardio, Polar, Omron, Microsoft Health, Garmin Connect, UP by Jawbone, Samsung S Health, Nokia/Withings, Fitbit, Apple HealthKit and iHealth, in enabling users to record data directly into their Medelinked health record but also include a range of medical details including allergies, conditions, immunisations, medications and tests and the ability to store clinical standard DICOM MRI scans and x-rays to complete their health profile as well as storing insurance and other documentation.

Using Medelinked individuals are also able to create personal and family health profiles online that are secure, locate healthcare specialists and connect and share their health records with their network of trusted health partners and providers (including doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, trainers, insurers, clinical researchers).

Medelinked Secure Cloud

Patients’ medical records are held securely using the Medelinked Health Cloud system. The user has sole control over the information that is stored and whether they wish any healthcare individual or organisation to view any part of their medical history.

The user can also choose any information they would like to store in a password-protected Emergency Records area, which a chosen family member or colleague can immediately access in the event of an emergency.

Ian Gallifant, Medelinked founder and CEO, says: "We are now seeing a dramatic shift in healthcare - individuals have a heightened interest in their own wellbeing and are increasingly interacting with personal technology to manage their lives.

Making a difference starts with such health information being stored in an easily accessible way and providing users with the ability to add to their records and share information easily with the healthcare professionals they locate and choose - to ensure the best advice is given based on previous history, wherever they are around the world.

Adding Google Fit to the host of apps, sensors and devices that integrate with Medelinked ensures customers are in control of their health and personal, portable electronic health records are the way forward for improved healthcare and better outcomes in the future."
