Brooklyn brothers develop new EHR-accessing service for patients

If managing often voluminous patient health records is a challenge for healthcare providers, it can be even more overwhelming for the patients themselves, especially if they develop multiple health conditions.  In the aftermath of a family medical emergency, four brothers of the Dib family in Brooklyn have created a new medical records service.  The brothers Dib claim that through their newly-launched website patients and their loved ones can easily access their medical records and – for a fee – do so without having to go through their doctors’ offices.  As every EMT knows, speedy access to health records in an emergency can mean the difference for a patient between tragedy and staying alive.
