Capital BlueCross, My Pocket File Team to Offer Mobile, Digital Personal Health Record
Capital BlueCross and My Pocket File are teaming up to provide Capital BlueCross members with My Pocket File's secure, mobile, digital Personal Health Record (PHR), the mDoc card™.
The mDoc card™ also includes an Emergency Medical Form -- an unsecured profile that ensures critical medical details (e.g. allergies, medications and emergency contacts) are instantly available to Emergency Medical Staff in a medical crisis.
With the mDoc card™, a User's personal medical history is in their wallet or purse, with them when they need it. Time and money are saved as information is easily shared between physicians, duplicate testing is avoided and appointments to review records become unnecessary. mDoc cardholders gain possession and control of individual and family health information while becoming more educated about their personal health.
The digital PHR, or mDoc card™ is a patent-pending secure, mobile Personal Health Record storage device that is offered in conjunction with a PHR management service. Unlike existing PHR solutions, My Pocket File's PHR management service and mDoc card™ serve as a truly unique combination, with service as the cornerstone of the offering. Additionally, the mDoc device is secure and easily transportable, fitting in a User's wallet.
"Simply put, a User has to complete one form, which takes about five minutes and My Pocket File does the rest. We have streamlined the PHR creation process. My Pocket File has made getting a digital PHR as easy as making an online purchase -- anyone can do it and everyone should," said Leslie Bucher, Founder of My Pocket File.
"At Capital BlueCross we constantly strive to improve the health care experience for our members," said Bill Lehr, Chairman and CEO. "My Pocket File is a partnership that will most certainly provide a service making the often time-consuming process of transferring personal health information a much easier and convenient one."
While most online and technology-based PHR offerings require an individual to actively obtain, input, organize and maintain their personal health information, My Pocket File executes the complete process of acquiring, digitizing and organizing a User's entire medical profile. The result, a password-protected device, is delivered to their door. Because the mDoc card™ is an annual subscription, updates are continually issued and the PHR remains up-to-date and accurate. The card requires minimal technical knowledge of the User and their physicians and is usable in any computer.
