The HealthLynked COVID-19 Tracker app has reached a new milestone. On Tuesday, HealthLynked (OTC: HLYK) announced that its COVID-19 market-leading health app surpassed 1.65 million downloads since its launch roughly one month ago. The app is an interactive tool developed to help track the spread of COVID-19 with its patient and user engagement platform. In addition, it has become a go-to health care and services platform that provides critical and timely information based on updated WHO verified statistics.
Since February, the COVID-19 tracker application has been available for IOS mobile devices, followed by the Android version launching on March 5, 2020. The mobile app provides updated information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) on confirmed cases and deaths worldwide. Furthermore, the application allows users to report how they are feeling and if they are having any symptoms consistent with the COVID-19 infection.
The innovative app has also integrated a tool that includes a detailed global map tracking the virus, the latest twitter feeds, and a real-time chat for users to engage with people from around the world to share information. The real-time chat function has specific rooms monitored by healthcare professionals that are dedicated to countries from around the world, so users can communicate in their own language.
Expressly, HealthLynked has noted that they are working with healthcare providers to deliver educational content via webinars and materials from the WHO and CDC to its user base. The breakdown of user demographics indicates that roughly 700,000 users are in the USA, 633,000 are in Europe, 200,000 in Asia and approximately 55,000 reside in South America.
The application is unique in several ways and is one of only a few known apps that offer real-time data exchange from an active user base.

HealthLynked Extends COVID-19 Information Through Its Global Network
The app was brought to the market through the HealthLynked Global Network, a patient-centered medical information exchange designed to bring efficiencies and convenience to patients by connecting users, doctors, and healthcare data. The platform provides an advanced and comprehensive application that can connect patients to their healthcare providers, and at the same time, integrate a healthcare medical record system that can provide personalized medical recommendations using artificial intelligence (AI).
Moreover, the comprehensive Network also tackles some of the biggest problems in the healthcare system by allowing a patient-user to locate appropriate healthcare providers, schedule appointments, and alleviate slow check-ins’. In addition, the HealthLynked Network provides valuable tools that enable medical record mobility and access, management of other family members healthcare, and efficient marketing of healthcare-related services. And, while some of these tools were available in the early part of the last decade, HealthLynked has made them better. These advancements are leading users of the technology to believe that their improvements in efficiency and effectiveness can lead to revolutionary changes in how healthcare is delivered – a service that will ultimately benefit us all.
Revolutionizing the Future of Healthcare Beyond Coronavirus
Although there is a current focus on the COVID-19 Tracker app, HealthLynked is building a far more formidable and comprehensive user platform. HealthLynked, for instance, is already well-entrenched to changing the way patients recognize personal health decisions. Looking to change the way people address their health care decisions, HealthLynked is appealing to the more than 30% of patients that don’t follow up for recommended appointments. Corresponding research indicates that getting these patients back in for a follow-up and recommended screenings can significantly improve healthcare outcomes while increasing physician revenues by as much as $135,000 per year per provider. And, that’s just one metric.
In addition, improving office efficiencies by reducing patient intake times by 5 to 10 minutes per patient can allow a provider to see up to ten more patients per day. HealthLynked’s QwikCheck application enables patients to check-in via their smartphone devices and shorten their check-in process. Studies have shown that just seeing one more patient per day can yield a $50,000 increase in physician revenue annually.
The platform can offer a further inherent benefit to healthcare providers by reducing overall costs. Additionally, strategic partnerships with medical supply companies like MedOfficeDirect give providers access to save 10-25% on their medical supply purchases. Beyond that, the HealthLynked platform can get even more specialized.
Integrated Healthcare Data-Sharing Revolution Gains Momentum
As patient treatment becomes more specialized, data sharing in the healthcare industry is a definite necessity. And, with patients often seeing multiple physicians for particular health issues, the need for a seamless method of communication becomes vital. On this issue, several things are important to note:
Healthcare is highly specialized– and keeping healthcare records updated among multiple providers is a challenge. To optimize care, medical information needs to be integrated and up to date among all the healthcare providers involved in a patient’s care.
Prescription medications can lead to complex and unfortunate drug interactions if providers are not fully aware of all the medications a patient is taking.
Medical mistakes are most often the result of incomplete information in the medical record or the provider not having the most up-to-date information.
And, as essential and remedial as medical record sharing may sound, still, 30% of physician practices in the US do not use an electronic health record system. Moreover, there are over 1,000 different electronic health records systems in the US, and connectivity among these systems often does not exist. Now, when utilizing the HealthLynked Network, patients and doctors can have a common platform where sharing medical records and related data is quick and easy.
With an experienced management team and a growing revenue base, the HealthLynked Global Network is projected to grow by thousands of physicians and millions of patients by the end of 2020. As well, the company has plans to up-list to NASDAQ by late 2020. And, the Company recently announced it signed a definitive agreement to acquire its first Accountable Care Organization (ACO) to complement its existing Network.
Already, the HealthLynked Global Network has proven that it can be a proven resource of information and communication in a global pandemic, and revolutionize the economics and efficiencies of the healthcare industry. By offering a modern, accessible, and cost-effective system, better health can become an attainable reality for individual patients and, by extension, the population at large.
Now, as more people around the globe get introduced to the power of the HealthLynked platform through its timely and critical COVID-19 updates, the growth potential of the company’s core platform has never looked better.
Importantly, HealthLynked has demonstrated a unique ability to quickly develop tools that have a real-time application, global influence, and integrated communication functions that differentiate the company from competitors. That, too, makes HealthLynked not only an important company to its patient user base, but also makes the company attractive from a valuation perspective, as well.
