(aka: accompany records with meaningful education, guidance and support for patients)
Lastly, PocketHealth is guided by the conviction that responsible record sharing means more than sending image files. We believe that patients need guidance on how to use their record to improve their care, and that means emphasizing the importance of medical expertise in interpreting their imaging. With PocketHealth, we work to not only empower patients with their health data, but also educate them on who it can be shared with, how it should be secured, and the limitations of non-medical analysis. In reality, this education means engaging with the patient at every step in the process, even before they receive their first record:
These three simple principles - Patient-Centricity
- have helped grow PocketHealth to over ten thousand patients, hundreds of healthcare professionals and dozens of X-Ray, Ultrasound, MRI/CT, Cardiology and Nuclear imaging centres across Ontario. As our growth continues our mission will stay the same, these principles will continue to guide us, and our dedication to our patients, healthcare professionals & imaging centres will remain at the core of everything we do.
