Medyear is elevating the healthcare experience with advanced medical messaging to connect patients and doctors. Using the same secure email protocol that doctors use to communicate amongst themselves, patients can now message over 680,000 doctors across the United States to request their records, share their medical history, and ask questions of their doctors. Doctors will receive these messages at their EMR’s Direct inbox, and can simply message back from their existing EMR system. When patients request an electronic copy of their records, doctors can transmit a patient’s medical records from their EMRs simply by sending a Direct message with attached CCD files to the patient’s [firstname.lastname@example.org] Direct address.
Using Medyear requires an annual subscription. The cost of a one-year subscription is $49.99 per year, which is offered as an in-app purchase. There is also a one-time account setup fee of $14.99 for new users.
Medyear features for patients: Health Feed: Journal about your healthcare experiences through photos and status updates. Medical History: Store all of your medical records from various sources all in one place. Safe Spaces: If your doctor has Medyear Pro, you can privately chat with your doctors and share parts of your medical record. Care Team: Connect with those involved in your care, and directly message them at their secure inbox.
How do I get my medical records?
From your Medyear Mobile app, you can send a Direct message to your physician and ask for an electronic copy of your medical records in CCD format. Thanks to healthcare modernization, many doctors can now simply reply with an attachment of your CCD file using their EMR systems.
What is a Direct address?
Direct is a secure protocol for doctors to communicate with one another. Medyear gives patients the same grade of Direct address that doctors use in their own practice. Your email@example.com address works a lot like an email, but has enhanced security that has been approved for medical use.
How can I share my medical records?
Sharing medical information is a delicate and deliberate act. Medyear Mobile lets you share safely. In a private chat, you can share specific parts of your medical history with only those you choose. You can also move your CCD files from doctor to doctor, giving you control over your health data’s portability.
Why should I control my medical records?
Your life may depend on it. Not having the right information when it really matters can end up costing you a lot of money, your health, or even worse, your life. An unaccounted-for allergy, procedure or condition could lead to wrong treatments and wrong diagnoses.
Medyear requires patients verify their identity as part of account activation. New Medyear patients will be required to submit a photo of: their government-issued Driver’s License or ID, and a selfie of the patient himself or herself.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of Direct addresses, Medyear subscriptions are non-refundable. Also, when choosing a Direct address, please note that it is permanently assigned to you so, so choose wisely. The account setup fee is also non-refundable.
Please also note that although this app takes great measures to secure your personal health and medical records, once they're in the app, according to HIPAA, maintaining their privacy becomes solely your responsibility. Take heart however that we have built this app to help you greatly in this.
