HealthLynked improves healthcare for patient members and physician providers through a sophisticated patient care management system known as the HealthLynked Network, a cloud-based online platform that allows patients to enter their medical history (i.e. medications, allergies, past surgeries, and medical records) into one secure location. While patients are not charged to set up an account and to access the system, physician providers pay a monthly fee for the service as it increases their online visibility, retains current patients, recruits new patients, and improves office efficiency. The HealthLynked Network also makes it easy to keep every patient’s medical information up-to-date and on track, despite the common complexities of healthcare such as multiple providers, insurance issues, or when a patient changes location.
