What Is The POEM Record™?

The Patient-Oriented Electronic Medical (POEM) Record™ is the first, and only, full-featured electronic medical record (EMR) for BOTH patients and providers.  With a free app download, you will have an elegant software platform to organize, manage, and control access to your health data directly on your mobile device.  You can also join patient communities, analyze your health data, join research efforts and communicate directly with your healthcare providers.  POEM Records™ are accessible to patients on their mobile devices, yet optimized, efficient, and powerful enough for healthcare providers.

  • Efficient, speedy workflow (70% faster workflow than other EMRs)
  • Elegant, uncluttered, intuitive user interface
  • Mobile tool that allows you to do your notes anytime, anywhere
  • Engage patients with no additional work or additional costs

Providers, you don't have to use the POEM Record™ as your everyday EMR to take advantage of many of these benefits. Using our automated system, your office can make any records requested by your patients available on their POEM Record™ with the simple click of a button. So you can focus on providing patient care and seamlessly engage your patients at the same time.

What's Our Goal?

To engage patients and doctors by giving users full access to, and control over, their medical records.

How it Works

Using our free, mobile POEM Record™, you give us authorization to retrieve copies of your medical records on your behalf. Automatically, upon receipt of those records, our pipeline architecture and machine-learning algorithms then process and organize the data into the POEM Record™, giving you complete access to, and control over your health records—forever.

Because it’s a full-featured EMR, the POEM Record™ gives consumers access to powerful software tools currently used by doctors and insurance companies. As a cloud-based solution, we maintain a secure, encrypted copy of the records on our servers, updated in real-time whenever the POEM Record™ is updated, so you don’t have to worry about losing your data, data security, or maintaining your privacy. And because the entire process is automated, the only work required by you is a 5-10 minute registration and authorization process, from right within the app!  

What's The Process For You? 

  • Download the POEM Record, register, and give us your providers' names/contact info, as well as your consent to allow us to obtain your records
  • Carry on with the rest of your life 
  • We retrieve and process your records on our secure server 
  • Enjoy full access to, and control over, your medical records and other related healthcare empowerment tools!

Risks and challenges

We have dedicated thousands of hours and dollars to develop our software and our strategy to empower medical consumers and revolutionize healthcare. We now need your help to complete our software and launch our POEM Record™ app direct to consumers and healthcare providers. Without that help, we risk not being able to bring you these important tools.

The economic support you provide will go directly to feeding our software development team, expanding our partnerships with healthcare providers, and launching our POEM™ app directly to consumers as soon as possible. The more resources we have, the more more likely it is that we can mobilize your health data in the future.

Our proprietary process for processing medical records data relies heavily on perfecting our data-hungry machine-learning algorithms. Therefore, the more consumer health data we get, the more reliable our models become and the better and more efficient our tools will be for consumers. Without your support we run the risk of not having enough data to completely refine our pipeline and bring a mobilized health record directly to consumers.

We've assembled a team of talented and dedicated people capable of expertly helping us with our multifaceted approach (algorithms, app development, UI/UX, clinical product development) to mobilizing health records. We've already built large swaths of our POEM Record™ and our pipeline. Like all software and app developments projects, however, we run the risk of unforeseen technological issues that could cause delays or product revisions.

FAQ

  • Have you ever seen a doctor and been greeted with a stack of paperwork? Have you ever tried to request your medical records and been forced to wait on hold, send faxes and pay $25, $50 or more per provider for the privilege of having "your" information? Have you ever had to negotiate medical costs or treatment options with a new insurance company? Have you ever tried to keep track of when your children were last vaccinated, or whether your parents took all of their medications last night? Have you ever tried to contact your doctor with a "quick question"? Have you ever wondered whether there are any common treatment alternatives for your condition? Have you ever wanted to "compare notes" with patients with similar interests or diagnoses? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you probably understand the value of having control over your health data - its YOUR data and YOU should control it.

    Last updated:
  • Portals don't give you control. Portals are controlled by someone else. Likewise for other apps that are specific to a hospital or clinic. While nice, these tools are unusable by doctors from other clinics, or if you switch providers. Having your entire medical record with you in your POEM Record™ gives you actual control over your records and makes those records independent of any specific provider, clinic, or hospital.

    Last updated:
  • The POEM Record™ is the only consumer app that is a full-featured EMR that's usable by your doctors. Many personal health records (PHRs) don't have your full records, and doctors don't use PHRs. The POEM Record™ helps patients and doctors directly engage each other, which leads to better health outcomes. And, in addition to automating the process of obtaining your records, the POEM Record™ uses a gorgeous, advanced interface unlike any other application available. This takes the tedium out of the management of medical records for both doctors and patients.

    Last updated:
  • At the moment, our algorithms are trained with English language text and our service is confined to the United States. However, we hope to localize our application to other regions and languages in the very near future. If you have medical records from another region or in another language, we can accept them and use them for further training our algorithms. But unfortunately at the moment, we cannot assure that we will be able to automatically process them into the POEM Record™.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. As a patient facing mobile EMR, we confront a security challenge that the rest of the industry has chosen to avoid. We need to ensure you the convenience of secure access to your record on your mobile device where ever you may be. We have taken steps to ensure that your POEM Record™ is secure during its entire lifecycle and that the only people who can access it are people to whom you have explicitly granted access. We understand that data security and privacy protection can’t be achieved with one-time measures, but instead require a continual process. We’re obsessed with our security processes and continuously finding ways to refine them.

    Last updated:
  • To start we’ve gotten rid of any assumptions in regards to when your data can be safely accessed. We consider all environments to be potentially hostile and take steps to secure your POEM Record™ accordingly. Whether on your device or in our server rooms, we encrypt your private data both in transmission and in storage. That means that unless you’re on the device viewing your medical data, it’s encrypted with the same powerful encryption that banks and the government use to protect highly sensitive information. Beyond encryption, we've built into the work flow of our app simple and powerful UI motifs for granting and revoking access to parts of the record. Whether you’re granting/revoking access to people in your “Care Circle™” or to providers, you’ll have the power to control who can access your record in a nuanced way. In addition, we've infused the POEM Record™ with special powers that allow it to automatically log when it’s been viewed or modified for audit purposes. These steps are just the beginning. From incorporating data security and privacy into our programming process to putting in place systems and network architecture processes (firewalls, multi-factor authentication, penetration testing, change control) to safeguard access to our systems at multiple levels we’re vigilantly minimizing the risk and consequences of a breach. Finally, in the event that we believe your data to be compromised, we will notify you.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. We built the POEM Record™ for interoperability and free (secure) data exchange. This is what providers have been demanding, and openness leads to better care for you. We're built for open integration with any EMR or any other mobile health application interested in, and committed to, these principles.
