HealthFusion® Announces the Release of the YourHealthFile® Patient Portal

The Enhanced Patient Portal That Transforms Lifestyles of Patients and Providers

SOLANA BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 30, 2011) - Today, HealthFusion, Inc.®, the creators of MediTouch EHR®, announces the release of their enhanced patient portal -- YourHealthFile. The YourHealthFile Patient Portal significantly expands the kinds of interactions, information, alerts, and recommendations available directly to the patient from their healthcare provider, via a Web-based, cloud computing solution. The YourHealthFile Patient Portal is, "The physician's assistant, in the patient's home."

According to HealthFusion Founder and CEO, Dr. Seth Flam, "Healthcare providers need an organized way to empower their patients -- they need an online patient portal that promotes self-service and easy interaction between the medical practice and the patient. With the YourHealthFile Patient Portal, we have found the happy medium of patient self-service and empowerment, with the proper amount of physician supervision and expert advice. The balance streamlines front office workflow, and actually incorporates patient-created chief complaint and medical history data directly into the electronic health record (EHR). Physicians deal with fewer mundane tasks and are able treat more patients, while patients feel more connected to their healthcare providers; YourHealthFile is more than just a patient portal, it is a gateway to a better lifestyle for healthcare providers and patients alike."

The YourHealthFile Patient Portal utilizes the concept of patient self-service and online communication in ways that have been proven to save providers thousands of dollars per year and most importantly, streamline both administrative and clinical workflows. YourHealthFile is not a third party product; it is completely integrated with the MediTouch EHR, and this level of integration enables entries made by patients to automatically update the EHR (changes to the insurance and medical histories are pended for approval by the practice). Now, with YourHealthFile Patient Portal, common tasks can be performed online -- including patient registration and scheduling, appointment confirmation, prescription refills, health maintenance, and billing. Most importantly, patients can begin the Chief Complaint, History of Present Illness, and Review of Systems at home, prior to their visit, assisting healthcare providers and their staff in creating the patient encounter when they arrive for their appointment; a real time-saver for everyone.

HealthFusion's patient portal helps promote the medical practices' of MediTouch EHR users by enabling their practice website and the YourHealthFile Portal to operate together seamlessly. When YourHealthFile is incorporated into a practice website, it increases traffic to that practice's website, adding value to the practice's online presence. With YourHealthFile Patient Portal, many of the tasks performed by the medical team, including the physician, can now be performed at the patient's home or at an office kiosk by the patient. Patients love to participate in their healthcare; they want to understand and interact with their personal health record (PHR), and find new ways to communicate with their medical provider -- YourHealthFile makes that possible. The YourHealthFile Portal is highly customizable; it allows the provider to control how much online interaction is best for their practice, and which person(s) in their practice triage messages or prescription refill requests from patients.

When practices adopt MediTouch EHR, the YourHealthFile Patient Portal is just one of many features that enhance the lifestyle of every member of a practice's team, including the physician.
