NAPLES, Fla., March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — HealthLynked Corp., a global healthcare network focused on care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies that connect patients, physicians, and medical data, proudly announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the company Patent No. 11,600,395 for its innovative “Secure Patient Access via Healthcare Service Provider Specific Wireless Access Point” technology.
The patented technology encompasses systems and methods for providing a healthcare service provider-specific wireless access point, or “HUB”, that facilitates secure communication between patients, providers, and third-party services. When in range of the HUB (e.g., in a doctor’s office waiting room), patient devices can connect to the healthcare service provider’s (HSP) wireless access point. The access point can be configured to detect the presence of a patient device, obtain identifying information, and send the information to a server.
The server uses the obtained information to create or update a profile for the patient associated with their device. This profile can be updated with additional information derived from the patient’s interaction with the network, provider input, or the patient updating their profile or inputting additional information. This innovative approach allows for streamlined communication and enhanced data security within the healthcare setting.
“We are thrilled to receive this patent, which represents a significant milestone for HealthLynked as we continue to develop cutting-edge solutions for the healthcare industry,” said Dr. Michael Dent, HealthLynked’s CEO. “Our team is dedicated to improving patient outcomes and creating a more patient-centric healthcare system, and this patent is a testament to our commitment to innovation.”
The issuance of Patent No. 11,600,395 provides HealthLynked with a competitive advantage in the growing digital healthcare market, protecting its intellectual property and enabling the company to further refine and expand its offerings. As a result, HealthLynked is poised to make a lasting impact on the healthcare industry by offering patients and providers a more efficient, user-friendly experience and creating a more accessible and efficient healthcare system for all.
