MediTracker promises to do what MyHR hasn't and put GP record in patient's hand

General practices will soon be able to offer patients a read-only summary of their medical record on their phone or iPad through Precedence Health Care's MediTracker app, which is set to begin rolling out this month to all Independent Practitioner Network (IPN) medical centres as well as any practices using MedicalDirector, Best Practice or Zedmed.

MediTracker can extract data such as current and past history, current medications, adverse reactions and immunisations from the GP clinical information system and present it in summary form through the patient app, also allowing patients and GPs to upload and graph measurements such as blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol, and for all members of the patient's care team to see up-to-date data in real time.

I am curious to know how this differs from Healthi that gives you direct access to your e Health Record for free which includes GP visits , medications etc are we not just duplicating ?

I have both Healthi and Meditracker running as a trial - on myself as a patient, consumer and at my GP Clinic as a Service Provider

Healthi remains very basic and is currently as useless as the MHR is in terms of a clinical use

Meditracker has a lot more potential but sadly there are a lot of teething issues - I currently have a good summary on my phone that is very useable but they are as yet unable to let the system see my records that are on my phone (Apple health, etc) at my "medical home" on their system. It was there for a while after I created a health summary (as the Care Provider) using cdmNet but Meditracker support deleted it as it was creating duplicate entries on their side - still waiting for them to fix it so that a Care Provider will be able to see the summary and use it as part of the management of the patient's care. At present no one at my "medical home" would have a clue that I even have Meditracker linked up to their records.
