Dedicated to building innovative software solutions to provide bi-directional data flow between patients and their full care team, improving the lives of patients and clinicians.
MyLinks was created to help patients gather the important information they need from all their health care providers.
The MyLinks journey began in 2011 after our company’s founder Debi Willis was recovering from kidney cancer. Debi was previously a care giver for her sister before she lost her to an incurable form of brain cancer. This was the third member of Debi’s family to die of brain cancer. Then her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She had seen both of her grandfathers struggle with dementia and now she was losing her mother to this disease which also had no cure.
Developing MyLinks has been a labor of love by the entire MyLinks team who are not only dedicated, smart, and kind…but always striving to provide the best experience for MyLinks users and healthcare organizations. MyLinks uses the newest technology standards (FHIR) which has been mandated by the US government as the foundation for health information exchange now and into the future. Because the standard is so new, some EHR vendors and thousands of healthcare organizations required help to test and implement the newly mandated technology. The MyLinks team was happy to help…knowing that with each organization that was helped there would be thousands of patients who now had access to their data.
“MyLinks allows each person to have their own copy of their full electronic medical record accessible to them from any device. It also allows family care givers to have all the information they need in case of an emergency – it is a real game changer that can save lives!”
