Empowering Your Health Journey: Our Secure Way of Exporting Health Reports

Our new Health Export function is a powerful tool in your healthcare toolbox. By providing clear, concise, and secure health reports as a PDF straight to your phone, you can take control of your health journey, ensuring that your voice is heard and your concerns are addressed.

At Human Heath, we believe the best pathway for people to live happier, healthier lives, is the pursuit of evidence-based medicine. This, as defined by Prof. David Sackett at the NHS in the United Kingdom, is “the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. The practice of evidence-based medicine means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research”. [1]

In practice, navigating healthcare systems built on evidence-based medicine can be challenging for patients, especially when dealing with chronic symptoms and a variety of unseen but very real illnesses. Too often, patients feel ignored or dismissed by medical professionals, unable to convey the severity and persistence of their health issues effectively. A recent study found that only 32% of Australian women felt they had clinicians who listened and focused on their unique needs [2], with 36% of women and 16% of men feeling like their GP dismissed their health concerns entirely [3]. The frustration of not being heard can be overwhelming, leaving many feeling helpless and unheard. This story is common throughout the healthcare system, leaving people demoralized about ever receiving the treatment they need.

One significant barrier to getting appropriate care is the lack of concrete evidence. Without a clear record of persistent health issues, it becomes difficult to demonstrate the need for further investigation or treatment. Symptoms can be overlooked or attributed to minor or unrelated causes, and the cycle of inadequate care continues.

Human Health has sought to address these disparities, and we are excited to give our users another tool for this with our new Health Export function. We designed this specifically to empower you, our users, to manage your health (even one of our founders used our beta version to get better healthcare for her son!). This feature allows you to generate comprehensive health data reports, showcasing trends and patterns in your symptoms and overall health. These reports are crafted in an easily digestible format, making it simple for medical professionals to understand your health trajectory at a glance.

With detailed reports in hand, you can effectively communicate with medical professionals, providing them with the evidence needed to support your case. Whether it's proving the persistent and ongoing chronic symptoms, declining quality of life, or highlighting trends that suggest a deeper issue, having tangible and actionable data can significantly impact the level of care you receive. Evidence-based discussions with your healthcare provider can lead to better understanding, more accurate diagnoses, and appropriate treatments.

A core principle of Human health is security, so we have designed this securely: the generated PDF report is available for download for only one hour, and only accessible via a specific un-guessable link, minimizing the risk of data leakage. After this period, you will need to generate a new report, adding an extra layer of security to your personal health information. We intend to explore allowing you to share direct links to reports and control access to your report links later.
