Chartis will now offer storage of electronic personal health records to clients worldwide through a strategic alliance with MMR Information Systems. The Chartis insurers will initially offer this access to electronic personal health records to accident and health policyholders but expect to expand the offering to additional product lines in the coming months.
Using MMR’s MyMedicalRecords technology, policyholders and their families will be able to store and manage their personal health records, as well as other important documents, in a secure, encrypted Web-based application that can be accessed 24 hours a day/7 day a week. Personal health records will initially be available in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese. The program will also include a virtual MyESafe deposit box for the storage of other important documents, such as insurance policies, passports, deeds of trust, wills and advance directives, in a secure, encrypted Web-based application.
In addition, each personal health record will feature a separate emergency log-in that will allow first responders and other medical personnel to access potentially life-saving information such as blood type, medications, and allergies from virtually anywhere in the world.
