Get Real Health has developed a solution for MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital aimed at improving spinal cord injury patients’ access to their health data.

The solution, which features the InstantPHR patient and provider portal as well as the Customer Service Administrative portal, was designed to serve as a single hub to house data culled from MedStar NRH’s electronic medical record system, results from labs, medication information, patient-generated data as well as relevant educational content, explains a media release from Get Real Health.

“This type of portal will empower those with SCI to monitor their health remotely, cutting down on the labor-intensive in-office visit. Providers will also benefit, as they can view up-to-the-minute patient data that will assist in early detection of harmful trends so they can intervene if necessary,” says Get Real Health president and CEO Robin Wiener, in the release.

The solution’s initial pilot phase was launched in October 2016 to a handful of patients to measure its ease of use and garner feedback that will be used to help shape future phases in anticipation of a wider release.

“This project was a great opportunity to showcase our product’s flexibility and how it can be used to meet the needs of a specific patient population,” Weiner adds.

For example, the portal was designed with large buttons to make it easy to use, especially for those with limited hand function, and built to be WCAG compliant, the release notes.
