Use Your ‘Virtual Body’ to Record Your Personal Health Story @HealthCorpus.com

Nhumi Technologies will launch Healthcorpus.com™—a new dimension in personal health records—Nov. 6 at Health 2.0 Europe. The new interactive Web site features a virtual human body that facilitates personal control of health information.

“Medical records are often incomprehensible to the layperson,” says Nhumi Co-Founder André Elisseeff, PhD. “With Healthcorpus.com, individuals can easily manage their personal health status, stay current on pertinent issues and share information in confidence with family, friends and physicians—in English, French or German.”

Unlike other online PHRs, Nhumi’s virtual model of the human anatomy lets you click your mouse to graphically indicate where it hurts or treatment was applied—or learn more about your anatomy. Users tag free text with 3D coordinates recorded on a virtual model of the human anatomy by simply clicking on the body, creating a pin, then dragging the pin to their text. This in turn enables tagging of medical information with spatial data and direct discovery of health stories from the virtual body.

“It’s that simple,” says Elisseeff, “and the potential for improving personal health is boundless.

“Registration is free for this beta release; a mobile version and greater storage capacity are in development.”

Lausanne physician Philip Siegenthaler, MD, says healthcorpus.com lets him quickly show patients pictures of the human anatomy to explain symptoms, and enables his patients to easily record how they feel and better describe ailments.

“The iPhone was a major advance in terms of making mobile phones more intuitive and fun to use. Nhumi does the same for PHRs. Their flexible and powerful solution seamlessly organizes and visualizes medical data in a uniquely comprehensible and meaningful manner.”

Health 2.0 Europe (Nov. 6, 9:30 am)—Elisseeff presents HealthCorpus.com at “From Global Data to Unique Decisions – Part 1: Patients” (Charité Hospital, Berlin).

RSNA 2012 (Nov. 25, 10:45 am)—Hirslanden Hospital radiologist Michael A. Patak, MD, presents the Nhumi imaging engine at “Introducing Intuitive Simplicity in a New Type of Browser-based Dicom-Viewer …” at the Radiological Society of North America meeting (McCormick Place, Chicago).
