Challenge

Populations are less healthy due to several factors: cost of medical care, lifestyle choices, focusing on treating symptoms vs. causes, and not having the access to knowledge to make informed decisions. Doctors' Patient Portals are numerous and not interoperable making it difficult for people to access to their medical information in one place. People must filter marketing/legal jargon so as to make informed decisions and obtain better health, and wellness and avoid chronic illnesses.

Solution

MySalus provides information, tools, and community support that includes peer, partner and provider insights to allow better informed consumer decisions on personal, family, and friends well-being. Our well-being tools allow and individual to have all their Health Records in one convenient and portable place thus giving the individual the ability to share their personal health records with any provider the wish; have tools to develop wellness plans and can form peer and provider support groups.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that empowering individuals to make better holistic lifestyle decisions, enabled with health and wellness management tools and supported by an interconnected community of peers, family, medical providers and partners will begin the reversal of this decades old problem. This may possibly lead to the reversing of ever increasing levels of chronic disease which have been elusive to date after billions of dollars have been spent on traditional approaches.
