e-IPO was founded in North Carolina over a decade ago in response to an Independent Physician’s Organization need to improve communication between member physicians’ offices. Its goal was to reduce the incidence of “RDD Syndrome” or “redundantly duplicated data syndrome” – the inefficient and redundant solicitation and recording of health information from the patient at each site of medical service. It was recognized that much of this information, for example, your past surgical history or family history was “static” or unchanging – but was nonetheless relevant and could in fact be vitally important if you were to need surgery or should a complex diagnosis need to be made.
Over the years, e-IPO has responded to changes in the health care industry and to the advances in internet communication. Our goals are embodied in our name:
Effective Information Provided Online
Efficient Integration of Physician’s Offices
Easy Individualized Private and On-time
The e-IPO product will allow you to record your health data and retain it or share it with the health care provider of your choice. The provider can preview this information prior to your visit. It is presented in a format that is standardized for professional consumption.
This can increase the value of your time with the doctor. Details are not lost to memory and prescription doses not guessed at. The doctor can focus on you and your problems and be assured the critical information is available for review.
The doctor will have the opportunity to enter your information into their medical record. Paper based systems are readily supported with customized forms. Electronic medical record systems are supported by our partnership with MediCode – a company that enables secure data uploads into EHRs.
The product has been developed by a neurosurgeon with decades of experience caring for patients. He has spent the “10,000 hours” obtaining data from patients with the current technologies. He has recognized the need for a better methodology to transmit information between patients and providers. An astute team of health care consultants, software developers, web site designers and internet security experts have re-developed e-IPO for consumer use.
Our intent is to provide you, the patient control over your health care.
It is your story.
It is your time.
It is your health.
e-IPO is here for you.
