WHY HAVE WE CREATED HEALTHBIT?
Healthcare providers are straining to keep us well due to a lack of funding. Our health information isn’t always very accessible and often doesn’t paint the complete picture. With our information being stored potentially in several clinical systems, not all doctors we engage with can access all our important details.
Healthbit helps you overcome these challenges whilst helping you learn more about yourself and your health along the way. You can record as much information as you like about yourself or your loved ones so that you can reference it in the future. And if you decide you need to share any aspect of your health data with your doctor, you can do that with a few clicks.
A NEW WAY FOR INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES TO STAY IN CONTROL OF THEIR HEALTH
As soon as you join, you can start monitoring your lifestyle or conditions, or for those you care for, and can view progress over time.
You’ll gain access to powerful insights about your conditions and can connect with others also managing similar conditions. Then, as your story develops, it’s easy to learn from other members and share your knowledge with them. We firmly believe that bringing people together in this way can help you achieve better health outcomes.
GIVING YOU CONTROL
Empowering individuals with the tools to manage their own health, or the health of others, offers an invaluable addition to available healthcare networks and support.
Healthbit puts you in charge. It’s easy to contribute yourself and build your personal health record or enable a carer (we call them contributors) to take part on your behalf – helping you create your own circle of care. You can choose exactly which condition(s) you wish to monitor, the information you want to share and who to share it with. You’re always in control of the information you share.
You’ll enjoy complete peace of mind throughout as your data is stored securely and is completely anonymous unless you decide to share any personal details.
For further peace of mind, Healthbit conforms with the requirements of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) so when you join, you have complete transparency around your data and can control how it is used.
BUILT ON CLINICAL EXCELLENCE AND BACKED BY TECHNICAL INNOVATION
Healthbit has been created with the help of highly experienced medical practitioners and scientists, as well as carers and patients themselves.
Digital innovators also play a key part in the development of Healthbit, ensuring the service remains as powerful and useful as possible.
As many others have already discovered, we hope Healthbit also helps you on your health journey.
Healthbit seeks to maintain compatibility with standards applied by leading healthcare providers. As a result, we leverage SNOMED clinical terminology to help you capture important medical information and other extensive treatment diaries so that doctors have a more complete view of drugs, herbal medicines and supplements that are being used.
