If you are a regular reader here, then you know I am a Tags Fan. This is the next phase of Microsoft Tags in working with RazCode to upload information to your Personal Health Record. I started this post a while back and Dossia has now been added so you will not see the name in a couple screenshots.
What I have done is to connect my HealthVault account to RazCode. Watch the video and some of this will become a bit clearer to understand. First you need to create you account which I did, a sample for this post. You will be prompted so it’s not that hard.
I don’t have a scale yet, but as you can see in reading here, you can connect the Withings Body Scale. Once connected your weight can automatically go to your personal health record, so in other words you won’t have to manually enter your weight.
Again with no scale, I am still able to import and connect some basic information to HealthVault or Google Health. Eventually as you can see from the images and information below, and EOB from an insurer will have a code whereby you use your phone with a camera and add it to your PHR.
The screenshot below shows blank as again I did an example for this post on what is imported into your PHR. With using a RazCode account it is not public information and you need to set up your pass codes, again for security and privacy here to distinguish between a public available Microsoft Tag and an encrypted code for personal information.
This is providing a simple way to update your PHR simply by using bar codes and the phone, software and camera on your cell phone. BD
The RAZCODE eHealth Gateway™ enables health care software and medical device vendors to easily integrate their products with all popular online health management services such as personal health records, fitness websites, and electronic medical records. It can help you meet the growing demand for easy and portable access to consumer health information, without the need to tether your software, system, or device to any specific health service provider. It makes integrating your Health IT solution to consumer selected online health services as easy as integrating an eCommerce application to the payment card networks.
The Gateway provides a RAZCODE™ ID or image (shown to the right), via a web service, that a vendor solution applies to health documents produced by the application including: receipts, labels, discharge instructions, health encounter summaries, explanation of benefits statements, account statements, etc.
When a consumer receives a health document containing a RAZCODE, he or she can upload the data to the online health management service that is best for him or her, using just the camera and data connection on a mobile phone, or via any web browser.
A consumer can also export his or her health information. This allows a consumer to provide a health care provider with a RAZCODE, that the provider can use to preview health information (at the RAZCODE Health Care Enterprise website or on a supported mobile phone), and to manually upload the health information into an electronic medical record that is capable of importing Continuity of Care records from a file (if the provider's EMR software is not yet integrated to the RAZCODE Gateway)
FDA could keep a copy of all the tags on reference in a data base, as a double check. You can read more at the link below.
