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, 28th February 2017 – Medelinked, the personal health record platform, is now integrated with Qardio’s award-winning digital health products: QardioArm, smart blood pressure monitor and QardioBase, wireless smart scale and body analyser.

Qardio is revolutionizing personal health monitoring by bringing innovative technologies, high-end design and exceptional user experience to the healthcare industry. The company’s medical-grade devices fit seamlessly into the modern lifestyle, so you can take care of what matters most: your health.

Record, connect and share

The integration of this technology will benefit Medelinked and Qardio users all around the globe. From now on, a user’s data captured by Qardio’s products - such as blood pressure, weight and heart rate – can be accessed via Medelinked, as well as within Qardio’s own Qardio App available on iOS, Android, and Amazon Kindle Fire.

Managing all health data in one place using the Medelinked platform helps individuals securely track, monitor and improve their health state, ensuring their latest health data can be accessed and shared. This enables the provision of the best possible care and keeps individuals in control of their own health. It also provides a scalable platform for device manufacturers to add value to their offerings, increase their range of services and deepen customer engagement.

Joins a wide range of other Medelinked integrated devices and services

The Qardio devices join a wide range of other Medelinked integrated devices and services such as Microsoft Health and Band, Garmin Connect, Omron, UP by Jawbone, Samsung S Health, Nokia/Withings 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) wherever they are in the world.

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.

Integration with Medelinked provides peace of mind that if Qardio device users 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.

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.

Dramatic shift in healthcare

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.

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

Martina Janeckova, VP of Global Outreach at Qardio adds: “Qardio is proud to partner with Medelinked as this new integration creates a more robust offering for all our users to better take control of their health and wellness. Qardio’s technology linked to the Medelinked platform will allow for a more connected and easy way to monitor their own health, whenever, wherever.”
