Clinical review

: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: March 2018
Pros: Responsive to feature requests and has been continually adding new features, and has many new features planned for the future. Can do video consultations for practices that enable this. Good security with 2-factor authentication. Log health goals which links to blood tests and measurements.

Cons: No app but is mobile responsive with a modern design. No current ability to graph blood results. Currently doesn't link to measurements such as blood pressure and weight but this can be added manually.

Comments: This app was promoted by my GP. Its security provisions and security policy is focused on protecting ConnectMed instead of patients, and it puts ridiculous limitations on ConnectMed's liability for failures or improper access.
