ChartSpan is the most downloaded medical app in America

Staff - Print  | 

Just two months after its initial release, ChartSpan has become the most downloaded medical app in America in the iTunes store.

The app, compatible with iPhones and iPads, is a free, encrypted and secure patient platform that allows users to access and organize their family's healthcare records. It currently is the No. 1 ranked app in iTunes' medical category.

"We've taken a contrarian approach to interoperability in healthcare," said Jon-Michial Carter, ChartSpan co-founder and CEO. "We've waited for more than a decade for providers, the government and the healthcare industry to deliver ubiquitous access to our patient healthcare records with little success. At ChartSpan, we decided to stop waiting on providers and build technology that would enable those with chronic illnesses and mothers, managing their family's healthcare needs, to use their smartphones, tablets or computers to manage their own workflow of healthcare records and information."

ChartSpan plans to offer n Android app by February 2015 and a web-based version by Q1 of 2015.
