Will I save money with the Patient Whiz?
Most people will have the potential to save a tremendous amount on their medical bills by using the Patient Whiz. In part, this is because doctors will be able to get to the root cause of your illness quicker if you able to communicate your symptoms to them in a manner that will help expedite your diagnosis, without unnecessary tests that are expensive and potentially dangerous. In addition, there will also be less risk of potentially dangerous medication interactions. In addition, having instant access to old test results and procedures will obliviate the need for redundant, expensive testing.
Who created the Patient Whiz?
The Patient Whiz was created by an experienced, board-certified physician and author, who became frustrated with seeing the infinite missed opportunities for maximizing patient care and the tremendous amount of money wasted, simply because patients have not been truly empowered to partner in their own healthcare.
The Patient Whiz can improve safety in many ways. For example, recent medical studies have shown that for each 1,000 CAT scans done, one person may subsequently develop cancer! While that is very alarming, there are times that a CAT scan simply must be done to diagnose a potentially serious condition (or rule it out). If you have all prior CAT scan reports in your wallet, you are less likely to be subjected unnecessarily to potentially harmful radiation. By knowing how to communicate your symptoms to your doctor more effectively, he is more likely to be able to diagnose your problems without the need for excessive testing.
Chock-full of charts and logs in fillable PDF format, the Patient Whiz allows you to record voice files, attach scanned medical reports, prepare for upcoming visits and so much more! Designed to be used with FREE Adobe Reader 9 or 10, Patient Whiz promises to put you in control of your health care, or your money back!
Keep track of everything from your surgeries, to your medication allergies, to the outcome of doctors’ appointments. Save the files and update them as often as necessary. There are even back-up charts to make sure you never run out of space.
The Patient Whiz also has potentially life-saving, patient-empowerment modules, which teach you how to expedite your own diagnoses and prepare for doctors visits in advance to get the most out of every visit. Even learn how to decrease the chance of hospital-related complications should you require hospitalization.
