Total Interoperability Today, with MedKaz®

Major New Development

MedKaz® recently announced a groundbreaking new record-sharing capability, called Targeted Record Sharing or TRS, that enables a patient to share her records from one provider with other providers who treat her for the same illness. 

This new capability ensures that care providers are aware, on an ongoing basis and without having to see their patients, of the care their patients are receiving from other care providers, and makes it possible for each provider treating the same patient to deliver better, coordinated, lower-cost care. 

It also is the first step in the dramatic expansion of MedKaz from a record-sharing application to a record-sharing communication platform that soon will enable patients to securely share their records with anyone they choose – such as parents, children, care givers, researchers — anywhere in the world, much as they exchange emails today!

The MedKaz Application

Our basic MedKaz application reimagines how patient records can be shared and used, and solves three of the most critical problems facing care providers — easily and today!  It saves them time with each patient. It gives them total interoperability today. It increases their income.  At the same time, it greatly benefits patients, employers, insurers and the government.  No other system compares!
MedKaz is the only system that assembles your Lifetime Health Record — copies of all your records from all your providers, plus the application to manage them, in one place — on a MedKaz minidrive. You carry it on your keychain or wear it, and give it to any provider you see — in or outside your network, at home or away.

With only two or three clicks a provider can access specific records and, thereby, coordinate care, avoid mistakes and unnecessary visits, tests and procedures, and deliver better, coordinated, lower-cost care.
