NAPLES, Florida, April 9, 2020 — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), a nationwide healthcare network focused on care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies that connect doctors, patients and medical data today announced that its tracking app was the #1 most downloaded app in the Apple medical store for the month of March with over 2 million downloads in just 4 weeks.
Users are from around the world and are broken out as follows: USA and Canada 843,299 or 42%, Europe 710,226 or 35%, Asia Pacific 243,000 or 12%, Africa & India 137,889 or 7%, Latina America 74,756 or 4%.
The app offers a unique set of tools that allow users to track local cases of COVID-19, report symptoms and talk with other users around the world. Early detection of COVID-19 is important to prevent spread and users can report if they are having any symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, as well as report if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or if their results are pending. The application updates data from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization) every 30 minutes for every country around the world. The HealthLynked team also updates cases at the county level in the US twice a day, reporting confirmed cases, deaths and recovered cases.
News feeds also provide the latest updates to users and guidelines on how to prevent COVID-19 infection, risks for pregnant women, concerns for pets and transmission, and a contact directory for each state’s health department.
One of the unique features of the application is that it allows users to chat in real time with people from around the world and share information and important updates about their area. The chat feature has over 100,000 active users and continues to grow. Registered users can upgrade their chat avatars and access member chat rooms not available to other users.
Social distancing has been key in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and medical offices have adjusted their practices to keep patients separated during check-in to avoid exposure. HealthLynked’s patient access hub “PAH” technology is uniquely designed to allow patients to check in via their smart phone, thus avoiding exposure at front desk areas, contact with high traffic surfaces and other devices. Patients can even check in from their cars in the parking area and be alerted via text message when their doctor is ready to see them, eliminating wait time in high exposure areas.
Dr. Michael Dent CEO stated “I am proud of our development team and how rapidly we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. The HealthLynked Covid-19 tracker has been the number one most downloaded app in the Apple medical store for past month, a testament to our design and the connectivity we offer.”
“Our PAH technology is also key to keeping patients safe and reduce exposure at point-of-care medical offices.” Dr Dent went on to say, “we are working with our members to connect them to their healthcare providers, coordinate their medical care and connect them to the larger global HealthLynked Network.”
As the pandemic outbroke, it created a panic like situation, people are scared, they are confused, and most importantly, it spread so fast that the medical department couldn’t do much about it. Besides, the virus’s symptoms are not very well known to people, and its testing started very late, thus making infected people unknowingly communicated the virus to another person. This called for a technological intervention where healthcare management, its provider, and its members could be on the same page. Therefore, HealthLynked Corp. launched a tracking app for doctors and patients. There move was so successful that it was recently announced that it is the most downloaded app. Likewise, Panacea Infotech is a leading solution providing company that is giving telemedicine and healthcare apps.
