Fitastik, a health management solution company has launched its mobile application (app) to provide medical record keeping services to its users on their smartphones. Available for download free of cost, both on Android phones and Apple’s iPhone, Fitastik is a cloud-based secure platform that takes charge of entire health management by storage of medical records and other important health data in a digitized format. The user has to scan and upload the medical records, doctor consultations, and other health data which can be shared with health care providers, family or friends. Fitastik also provides a detailed analysis of the user’s health conditions based on various parameters.
Sanjay Lakhotia, Founder Director, Fitastik, said, “With increased usage of mobile phones and internet on mobile phones in India, users prefer to access and transfer data on the go and the mobile app of Fitastik aims to make it easier for the users to access and share their health records online.” Data care and security aspects have been our prime focus while building the app as Fitastik does not intend to misuse the user’s personal or medical information in any manner, assures Sanjay.
The Fitastik app allows the user to securely store, access and share electronic health records, including lab results, doctor consultations, discharge summaries and other health data with doctors on the go, thus eliminating the need to carry one’s medical records while visiting a doctor. Similarly, one can share important reports with friends and family anytime and from anywhere. One can also keep a list of immunizations, medical conditions, allergies, etc. There are provisions to chart one’s blood pressure, blood sugar level and other medical conditions that need to be tracked on a regular basis.
Based on the information entered, the app creates an emergency profile of the user, which gives a snapshot of all the medical and health data of the user. This is very useful for crucial lifesaving moments. The app also allows adding medical records for family members and linking them together. Sanjay says they are building predictive health analytics and family health history tracking where in the user can link their family members together and view their health history. This can then be used for giving personalized health advice. According to Sanjay, “There is an increasing role of genetics in determining the user’s and his/her family’s health. Additionally, the user’s health information and history will go a long way in helping the future generations to better manage their health.”
Fitastik app can be a replacement for paper records and helps manage the medical information in one single place. It also digitizes the medical information and presents them in easy to understand health charts. The data is hosted in secure cloud servers with 256-bit transfer encryption.
There is also a website that can be used to access information from the desktop and other computer devices: www.fitastik.com.
Some of the distinguishing features of the mobile app include option for adding and monitoring health reports of family members and friends. The user can also create a personalized emergency profile for crucial medical needs to be shared with the heath care provider. Though there is option for unlimited storage for medical records and 24X7service, the paid membership of the app provides option for unlimited digitization of medical records, pick up of medical records for scanning, storage and drop of medical records to the pick-up point, and health analytics of medical records. Post the digitization process, the app displays vital health parameters in graphical format which makes them easier to track, view, and understand both for the user, their friends and family, and the medical practitioner.
