HEALTH CARE NEWS MyMedWall Announces Advisory Board Combines Social Networking , Exchange of Vital Healthcare Information J ust four months after a suc-cessful launch, MyMedWall. com – likened to a “medi-cal facebook” – has attracted a community advisory board of experts from all disciplines of medicine on the Space Coast. MyMedWall is a complete medi-cal “home” for patients, allow-ing them and their providers to combine social networking with the exchange of vital healthcare information. “My motivation is connection and education and empower-PHQWIRUWKHEHQHÀWRIDOO patients,” said Dr. Geetha Priyanka IURPKHURIÀFHV on South Wick-ham Road in West Melbourne. “This allows the $R&#0e;0RIYANKA patients to pos-sess their own health records. ‘Power to the Patient’ is my mantra. This isn’t about com-mercialization, I want patients to know as much as they can about what’s out there for them. They’re largely existing in the dark about their conditions and problems and concerns. MyMed-Wall can help open their eyes and connect to a whole new world of information available out there.” Dr. Priyanka has been practic-ing as a primary care physician for 14 years and arrived in Florida from her native Madras in India in 1995 as an anaesthe-tist before switching to general medicine. Despite the general excellence of health care in the U.S. – “bet-ter than anywhere else in the world,” she says – Dr. Priyanka has observed how fragmented the system is and so has set about trying to bring in improve-ments with MyMedWall. Her husband Naveen Ven-katachalam is a computer systems development expert who’s helped create and build MyMedWall. Offered Free To Public There is no charge for the public to register or to use the My Med-Wall system. It was created by Priyanka and Venkatachalam as a way for the inventors of Sushoo Health Information Exchange and DoctorsPartner Electronic medical records software to give back to the community. “There are around 50 to 60 personal health record systems currently available. For example, Microsoft has Health World. But what makes MyMedWall outstanding is the high level of social interaction that is avail-able through my system. There will be better choice for patients through better connection and education.” Community Advisory Board MyMedWall is proud to announce that the following Community Advisory Board members are now contributing input, articles and their considerable expertise towards MyMedWall.
