KidsLink, an online family management platform used to organize important documents, events, and milestones, announces its entry into the healthcare market in partnership with Piedmont Medical Center (PMC), a Tenet Healthcare hospital based in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Using the platform's innovative family dashboard and mobile app, parents can import, aggregate and share important documents—such as health insurance, immunization records, report cards, and activity forms—on their smart phone, tablet or desktop. The new KidsLink mobile application provides parents a tool to capture and store hard-copy documents for easy future access, all with their smartphone's camera. In Rock Hill, KidsLink provides local users quick access to PMC's patient portal to access their medical and billing records. Parents will also receive alerts regarding community healthcare events, tailored health awareness updates—such as flu shot availability—and schedules for wellness classes and support groups open to the public.
"We created KidsLink, in part, to streamline paperwork management and help parents connect with their children's healthcare providers and community organizations in a more meaningful way," says Chris Morocco, CEO of KidsLink. "The PMC partnership realizes what we've always envisioned: utilizing the latest technology as a starting point to guide parents through managing their family's life in the 21st century."
Specifically designed for busy parents, KidsLink is particularly beneficial to new moms by providing a central, curated set of tools that walks parents through the process of tracking documents, milestones, memories, and wellness for their babies and young children. It will debut its mobile app and sync with PMC's network October 20, 2013.
"A baby's birth is a milestone we are proud to be a part of here at PMC," says Bill Masterton, CEO of Piedmont Medical Center. "KidsLink allows us to stay connected with that family over time and remain easily accessible if a medical need arises. It also provides a channel for us to communicate important and valuable content with them."
