Zweena® Revolutionizes Personal Health Records With New Internet Service for Individuals and Their Families

Partnered With Microsoft HealthVault®, Zweena Eliminates the Complexity of Creating and Managing a PHR for Use in Self-Care, Family Care, and Protection Against Medical Errors

SKILLMAN, NJ--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - Zweena® today launched its revolutionary new Personal Health Record (PHR) web service, featuring a proven proprietary platform that eliminates the complexity of creating and managing an online health record. Partnered with Microsoft HealthVault®, Zweena enables consumers to create and maintain a personally controlled patient health record for meaningful use in self-care, care of family members, and to share medical records directly with healthcare providers, via the Internet. Zweena's innovative platform collects medical records on behalf of individuals, creates a PHR based on the Continuous Care Record (CCR) guidelines outlined by the American Academy of Family Practice, then stores both scanned and discreet data within the individual's own secure Personal Health Community (PHC) for sharing with family members, and directly with providers.

"Eighty-six percent of Americans or higher say that PHRs could help them avoid duplicated tests, keep doctors informed, check the accuracy of medical records, and track personal health expenses, yet only seven percent use PHRs today, due to the complexity in creating and maintaining a PHR with existing services," said John Phelan, CEO of Zweena. "Recognizing the urgency and need for consumers to have accurate and current PHRs, Zweena developed a revolutionary electronic health record system that makes personal digital health records easy to set up, keep current, and share in a secure network for use in self-care and care of family members."
