HealthKeep Social Network Catalogues Your Medical Records

See on Scoop.it - Health Studies Updates

Keeping track of your medical records can get complicated. HealthKeep, a health-based social network, is looking to help people organize their patient history with a timeline of symptoms, medications and conditions.

Social media isn’t always the best place for sharing health concerns due to privacy issues, but HealthKeep’s users join anonymously so no identities are revealed. The site serves as a comprehensive snapshot of your health record, which is compiled with information you choose to post.

Similar to Facebook or Twitter, the site operates with feeds. If you wake up with a cough, you can look up the symptom on HealthKeep’s database to see what other users are experiencing. Those who take a particular medicine can filter feeds to read more on people’s shared side effects or new developments.
