parkinsons-awareness-month_1

About 1 million people in the United States have Parkinson’s disease. As the population ages, it is predicted that those numbers will continue to increase. There is no cure for this neurodegenerative brain disease, which is characterized by muscle stiffness, slowness in movement, and tremor.

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. People across the country are urged to learn more about Parkinson’s disease and advocate for advanced treatment and care for those afflicted with the disease.

The National Parkinson’s Foundation offers many opportunities to support the cause. During Parkinson’s Awareness Month, you can:

  • Participate in the Moving Day march, which takes place across the country benefitting expansion services and programs within local communities.
  • Join Team Hope for Parkinson’s and organize or sponsor marathon events with athletes to help raise money for research, treatment, and a cure.
  • Host your own event, such as a car wash or bake sale or arrange running, biking, and swimming events.

The National Parkinson’s Foundation is a proven advocate for those with Parkinson’s disease and caregivers. As a result of the foundation and Parkinson’s Awareness Month, most people now have access to speech therapists, occupational therapists, and other health allied professionals. Thanks to participation and monetary contributions, advancing knowledge has been attained through research to offer more hope for those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease.

Our team at PRIVIT recognizes the need for caregivers and parents alike to track health-related information for those with Parkinson’s disease. Multiple weekly doctor visits and managing medications can be a daunting task for any family member, or group of family members responsible for the care of an individual with Parkinson’s.

Family Health Profile provides an easy online, mobile friendly platform for generating health history, sharing information, managing medications, and providing PDF information at your fingertips for any doctor visit.

Consolidate all your doctors’ contact information, medications, and medical related paperwork for your family securely in one location. Family Health Profile walks you through a series of questions to help you easily create a health profile for each family member.

World Immunization Week is celebrated each year during the last week of April. The aim is to promote the use of vaccines to protect everyone from disease as well as the need for good tracking methods to report outbreaks.

This year’s theme is centered on creating a regional, national, and global effort to increase the awareness of the need for immunizations and to improve immunization delivery services. The campaign’s primary focus is on initiating the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP). The GVAP aims to:

  • Meet vaccination coverage targets
  • Introduce new and improved vaccines
  • Encourage research and development for the next generation of immunizations
  • Increase pandemic awareness

Immunization is recognized as one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions worldwide. It prevents between 2 and 3 million deaths every year. For vaccines to be most beneficial, they need to be administered on time, according to the schedule recommended by doctors and the CDC. With better ways to gather the appropriate data regarding illnesses reported, the healthcare community can react faster for global preparedness.


 

Family Health Profile is an easy online, mobile friendly platform for:

  1. Generating and maintaining health history – including immunization records, surgery history, and medication schedules and dosages.
  2. Sharing health information with your health care provider in an easy, efficient manner.

Consolidate your health information for you, your partner, your children, your parents, and for any other dependent you are responsible for managing their health information in one source with Family Health Profile.

 

Only enter your family’s health information once! After your profiles are complete, you can easily log in and make updates at any time. Family Health Profile conveniently helps you complete health related forms for your family, and is accessible from anywhere.

You can rest easy knowing, Family Health Profile uses double encryption methodologies for storing your information, from the point of entry, through the transfer process, and while it is at rest at our highly secure data centers.

Security concept: Gold Closed Padlock on digital background

There are two things that everyone cares about: their health and their privacy.  At PRIVIT, we understand there are hundreds of ways people share or exchange health related information. Whether or not you are sharing the information between you and your medical professional, your family, your school, or your employer, we know you have to make sure your medical information is private and secure.

PRIVIT takes privacy beyond what most companies ever consider. PRIVIT has “a solution based on their patented technologies for securely managing medical records in a privacy-compliant manner.” This solution uses data encryption and access control lists to enforce rules of access. Thus, assuring you are only sharing the medical information you want to share at any given time. PRIVIT uses this patented solution as the foundation for its Privit Platform where all of its products are developed: Privit Profile, Family Health Profile, Student Health Profile, and Employee Health Profile.

At PRIVIT, we put security first. Our belief is simple, double the encryption and double the security. We not only encrypt your data when it is being transferred over the Internet with 256 SSL technology, but we also encrypt the data when it is at rest in our secure data centers. Your data is encrypted once with an AE256 symmetric key, and then the key is also encrypted, and then put on an entirely different and secured server, making sure the data is secured. If someone was to actually view the data it would look like a combination of nonsensical symbols and characters.

Beyond our application security methodologies, all of our products are operated at the highest rated data centers in North America. The physical security is controlled and monitored by the companies themselves, and all of these data centers have passed the necessary privacy certifications including: ISO 27002, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, SSAE16, SOC1, SOC2, SOC3, and Safe Harbor.

Security discussions involve a lot of technologies, acronyms, and other multi-syllable, fairly non-understandable words, and is often referred to as Military Grade Encryption. You can take comfort in knowing that PRIVIT’s security methods go far beyond what others are even contemplating. Our patented, privacy protection methodologies make sure we live up to your beliefs. We know there are two things that you care about: your health and your privacy.  You can take care of your health, we’ll take care of the privacy of your health information.

PRIVIT

We are excited to announce the start of PRIVIT’s new blog! Our vision for this blog is to be a destination where individuals who care about the management of healthcare at all levels can collaborate by sharing ideas and gaining insight into valuable articles and information.

The PRIVIT® blog will be covering topics that will help to improve and empower your understanding and involvement in your family’s medical information. This information will serve as the cornerstone of important data that you can apply to managing your personal, family, team, or employee healthcare data.

Our topics will cover a range of articles, tapping resources from important influencers and thought leaders in the medical community. Our products, Privit Profile™, Family Health Profile, and the soon-to-launch Student Health Profile and Employee Health Profile, will allow anyone who “needs” this information to collect and securely store health information in one location in the event of an emergency situation.
