NAPLES, Fla., Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthLynked Corp. (HLYK) today announced it has retained Institutional Analyst Inc., to provide coverage to investors as it rolls out its comprehensive healthcare network to patients across the Southeastern region of the US and Texas.
"We are excited to initiate coverage of HealthLynked Corp, an Internet and Cloud-based network as it begins to add individuals and Physician practices to its recently launched network," stated Roland Rick Perry, Editor of the Internet Stock Review. "We believe HealthLynked has the potential to quickly scale and create a nationwide network of individuals who are looking to have full control of and access to their medical records and information, which can be shared with their healthcare providers - be it their current physician, a physician at another practice or at a medical facility in another part of the country."
He added, "Patients can be shocked to learn how little control they have over their own patient records, until a day arrives that they absolutely need it. The HealthLynked network, a free network to users, can provide instant access, regardless of where they are or who is providing their care. It is truly a revolutionary change in how both individuals can receive care and how practitioners administer care.”
Dr. Michael Dent, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Over the past decade changes in our nation’s healthcare system have made it increasingly important for a patient to have control over their personal healthcare data. We created the HealthLynked network to permit patients to have greater access to their medical records, which in the past was controlled by healthcare providers, limiting patients’ ability to be fully engaged and informed in their own healthcare process."
According to the Frost & Sullivan’s September 2013 study, “U.S. Patient Portal Market for Hospitals and Physicians,” about half of U.S. hospitals and 40 percent of physicians provide patient portals. However, two-thirds of organizations reported less than 5 percent of patients were participating in these portals in part because fewer than half the patients in the study weren't aware of whether or not their physician even had a portal. Patients typically have multiple providers who utilize different record systems that do not communicate with each other.
The goal of the HealthLynked Network is to help millions of patients and thousands of Physicians be better informed and have better access to patient medical records.
