Medefile International Inc. received praise and was even referred to as a doctor’s “secret high-tech weapon” in a recent article published on ZDNet.com. The article was written by Dana Blankenhorn, a business journalist with thirty years experience. The article is based on a conversation with Dr. Lorne Stitsky, who runs a Personal Choice Family Practice in Juniper, Florida.
Dr. Stitsky’s practice currently services 200 patients, with the anticipation of an additional 200. Keeping medical records and histories for all of these patients might seem like a mighty task, but with the help of MedeFile, it is a breeze for Dr. Stitsky and he isn’t afraid to admit it. He has his patients take advantage of a small device called a Mededrive, which is a very secure USB memory stick that stores the full medical records of each patient. All of these individual memory sticks are stored securely on a larger remote hard drive, called the Medevault, which can save physicians hundreds of cubic feet of file storage.
Milt Hauser, the CEO of Cedar Knolls, New Jersey-based MedeFile insists that his technology is better than any sort of medical record storage system out on the market. The main advantage is the personal security that Medefile offers. Hauser further elaborated on this security by saying, “…if you try to access it three times with improper security it wipes out the drive. It’s got password and user-name protection. If you’re unconscious, someone can pop this into the laptop, and an emergency screen comes up which the EMS can access. It’s just the information they need to get you stable and transported. Go beyond that and it’s user name and password.”
