Patient Better LLC, established in 2015, as just an idea that later would become a tool for every day people to better self-manage care. After research, we identified an obstacle that has impacted many online healthcare managers and could impact Patient Better’s usability. We discovered that people don’t always have internet access (and are not the computer whiz that the doctor’s electronic system believes that they are), Patient Better recognized that those folks needed a “hard copy option” to make it easier to store medical records in their home.
Indeed, those who were facing these internet and technology challenges were having a pretty difficult time retrieving and distributing their information to healthcare professionals in a timely manner. Moreover, those documentation challenges affected many other aspects in the patient’s at-home care such as being able to collaborate a care-giving team and cultivating additional resources. The next challenge metastasized when we identified society’s need for an easy to use portable product in which they can carry with them throughout their life. People need to feel comfortable bring a product with them wherever they go. So we solved this problem by creating a product with purposeful design. Our Self-Health Manager is a poly 13-pocket expanding file folder with a secured over the top flap so that their health information is protected and easy to clean (and disinfect) when bringing it to clinics or hospitals.
Finally, in 2019, after years of researching, matching and meeting the needs of the clinicians, payers and private citizens, we formulated a product that will provide a quality solution that would produce and capture the most susceptible information from being lost; at the most obtainable price possible. In other words, we didn’t want the price to affect the purchase After all these years of development, our concept was brought into reality.
Today, Patient Better is a complete program for every day people to learn how to manage medical records. Sure, not all the information that is created and collected by people and their caregivers will be as formal as the doctor’s office’s electronic record system. And that’s OK, because healthcare professionals understand their patient’s predicament. Patient Better’s specialists are trained in helping people feel comfortable making a concerted effort in documenting care.
Our program has not only helped people arrange and manage medical records but has transformed itself into a robust program that enables folks to “patient better” (hence the name). Our product, created for patients (and their caregivers) to equip themselves with the fundamentals to adapt and embrace our current healthcare system through a simple [hard copies] collection of medical data. By doing this, people realized that they freed up valuable face to face treatment room time and allowed for a higher-level consultation and ability to focus on more important individual condition management with the professionals in the treatment room.
