The Lynx Healthcare Navigator
The Lynx Healthcare Navigator™ provides an innovative, secure and portable medical record that also works with any electronic or paper-based record system.
The completed Navigator package includes two components:
Health Record Library
An indexed and searchable digital archive of the complete original medical records
Lynx Health Summary™
A comprehensive summary of the medical history, distilled and reviewed by professionals
The Health Record Library
Lynx obtains a signed authorization from the Individual Participant to gather their complete medical records from all sources. These pages are then scanned to create the Health Record Library. This provides a sorted, indexed, searchable archive of the original records.
The Lynx Health Summary™
With the Health Record Library in hand, our medical experts extract important information, linking each essential line of data to the original record in the Health Record Library. During this process, Lynx medical professionals look for incompleteness, missing facts, errors and inconsistencies. This information is then given to a Lynx doctor, who edits and reviews the information, organizing it into the comprehensive and systematic Lynx Health Summary™.
The summary offers a detailed overview of the patient’s medical history, presented in accordance with our expertly crafted system and designed to be of the utmost use to healthcare providers.
Simultaneously, each line of important information is cross-referenced with the Health Record Library, making the original medical documents available with a single click from the Health Summary.
To ensure that the Participant’s Lynx Healthcare Navigator™ includes the most accurate and relevant information possible, we complete the process with an optional interview before our licensed medical professionals sign and certify the package.
It may not be possible to complete some sections in an individual’s Lynx Healthcare Navigator™ from the data in the medical records alone. For example, the most current medications or supplements, family medical conditions, and living wills are rarely included. Therefore, we advise Participants to engage in a short telephone interview with the Lynx expert who is responsible for their personal Lynx Navigator. This allows us to correct errors and fill gaps in the information, which can save time and provide vital insights.
Once completed, the nurse and doctor sign the Lynx Health Record Summary™ with their license numbers. The completed Lynx Healthcare Navigator is delivered to the Participant and can be accessed by through a number of secure, portable formats, including the Lynx Flash Key™ (secure USB drive), smartphone, tablet, secure web folder, or printed to hard copy.
