VA members know that obtaining medical records is a time-consuming, difficult, downright near impossible undertaking. On Dec. 14, 2021, DrOwl, a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform built on patented technology, announced that it is connected to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to better serve the military community by giving members free access to their VA medical records.
“Setting up DrOwl was easy, as was establishing the connection with the VA,” said Tim Quinn, a Navy veteran from Louisiana who served in Iraq. “The DrOwl app brought in a very large amount of information and with the personal search engine, I am able to better understand my health. I highly recommend this app for any service members who want to know what their records say about them.”
Some studies have found that up to 70% of medical records can potentially contain inaccurate information. Mistakes can lead to incorrect diagnoses, and treatments, which can be potentially harmful to one’s health. The DrOwl platform gives patients the ability to better understand their health records, while simultaneously identifying any potential errors that can be discussed with their healthcare providers.
Members can now connect to the VA, Medicare, and thousands of other medical providers to access their medical history. Records are accessible and shareable on-demand with providers, caregivers, and family members. DrOwl’s technology utilizes AI and machine learning to create a personalized Patient Portal, including physician-curated research. This searchable Patient Portal is tailored to each patients’ specific conditions in easy-to-understand language.
Providing access to medical records is one of the many ways that the Department of Veterans Affairs is supporting members and helping improve their care.
“We are thrilled to be working with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Arvind Raichur, CEO, and Co-Founder, DrOwl. “Healthcare is personal. No one knows someone’s health history better than the patient themself. By offering veterans and their families a better way to manage their healthcare needs, we are not only giving back to them but also supporting them when it matters most,” said Raichur.
