Apollo Hospitals launches web-based Personal Health Record

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Hyderabad: Apollo Hospitals, in association with HealthHiway, on Tuesday launched Apollo Prism, a web-based personal health record (PHR) that would enable patients to receive, create and manage their health information such as lab test results, discharge summary, medical history, medications and other health interventions. The patients can then choose to share all or part of their health information with their loved ones and Apollo hospital.

Apollo Prism has been launched across all Apollo Hospitals locations. It has been tightly integrated with the hospital information system across locations, thus providing clinically validated information to patients, who come to Apollo Hospitals. Information is entirely patient controlled and completely confidential. Patients can also download the mobile application of Apollo Prism that lets them receive their lab test results on their phone. Apollo Prism is also an interface for diabetic patients, for managing their diabetes. Thus, beyond helping a patient to track and manage their health information, the PHR enables continuous, preventive and wellness support, according to a statement by Apollo Hospitals.

Sangita Reddy, executive director, Apollo Hospitals, said, “Apollo Prism is a significant step forward in our mission to further engage, involve and create a more delightful experience for our patients. When our patients have easy and secure access to their medical information, it reduces costs, improves outcomes and enables superior care.”

Madhu Aravind, CEO, HealthHiway, said, “Traditionally, care provided by a hospital was inward focused and physician centric. A PHR is a first step in involving and engaging the patient and makes the care delivery centred on the needs of the patient.”

Headquartered in Bangalore, HealthHiway is a cloud-based health information network that enables seamless exchange of health information – data sharing and transactional – between hospitals, clinics, diagnostics, insurers, doctors and patients.
