As content supplier and strategic partner of ICW, Onmeda offers its large data base with detailed information on more than 700 diseases and methods of treatment and examination, among other things. By this, LifeSensor users will have access to top-quality information on their diseases and risk factors with a single mouse click directly from their personal health record. Furthermore, interactive tools like a diabetes risk test, a diet check or a fitness barometer will be offered. Also, within this year, Onmeda will start to offer LifeSensor, the personal health record, on its portal.
Frank Warda, MD and executive board member of ICW considers this cooperation as a perfect complement: "With the personal health record LifeSensor, our clients can save their health data in a concise way and have access to them at any time. Due to the direct connection to the medical information of Onmeda, our clients will be able to better understand the health information contained in their personal health record. By this, our clients can control their health management in a more active way.
"We are glad to have the opportunity to take part in one of the most exciting current eHealth projects", says Philipp Montgelas, director of Onmeda health portal. "Our long experience in the interactive and plain presentation of top-quality medical content will help to provide LifeSensor users with a better understanding of the complicated medical world."
