Rockville (I-Newswire) August 19, 2013 - With the mission to better educate the consumers and empower them to take control of their health, BaiQuest International, LLC announced today that it has successfully upgraded its consumer portal www.iControlMyHealth.org to a new platform. The new responsive platform adapts to different screen sizes and enhances the viewing experience for the visitors. "Since, more and more consumers are accessing health information through their smart phones and tablet devices, this upgrade was a top priority and a significant enhancement for our consumers," says Ajit Baid, President & CEO of IControlMyHealth.
In addition to the upgraded platform, IControlMyHealth has further expanded its coverage of chronic illnesses, which now includes: Bipolar disorder, Depression, Diabetes, Feeding and eating disorders, High cholesterol, High blood pressure, Menopause, Mood disorder, Obesity, Osteoporosis, Pain, and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
IControlMyHealth is a health education website that has pioneered the concept of providing 360 degree view of scientifically proven treatment options to the patients - both conventional and non-conventional. Through collaboration with multi-specialty healthcare providers and researchers, IControlMyHealth team produces original, evidence based, comprehensive, unbiased, and up-to-date disease and treatment options. This expanded knowledge, delivered in a layman language, puts the consumers into the driver seat and enables them to make "better health decisions" in consultation with their health care provider and achieve best health.
iControlMyHealth provides credible and unbiased information about diseases and ailments in an easy to understand layman language. Through this, the intention is to educate the patients, caregivers, and others to have a better understanding of why, how, and what next about a disease or a medical condition. The ICMH editorial team and advisory board compile this information through extensive research, reviews, and collaboration with other organizations, as necessary. Our references section lists all the materials reviewed during the process. The resource section provides links to relevant websites that provide credible information with a similar mission as ours.
The advent of Internet and globalization has opened channels of knowledge exchange, which seemed impossible before. Today, the consumers have the opportunity to evaluate many more options before deciding what's best. The opportunities within complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) are growing day by day, which offers hope to reduce suffering and potentially a cure.
ICMH aims to cross the geographic, psychological, and social barriers by making consumers aware of the CAM options. Importantly, the need is to not only educate patients on the benefits of CAMs, but also caution them against using niche and internationally available CAM treatments that lack objective scientific evidence and seem to offer little or no benefit. Through this, consumers will be able to assess the benefits and disadvantages of each, have a productive dialogue with their healthcare provider, and decide what is best for them.
The field of medicine is progressing at such a rapid pace that it is very difficult to keep up with all the new technologies, product launches, innovative treatments, and revision to treatment guidelines. ICMH aims to constantly monitor the healthcare arena and keep consumers abreast of the medical advances. The editorial board provides unbiased reviews on each of these advances so that the patients, consumers, and other interested individuals can benefit the most.
Finding Best Care
It is well known that the quality of care varies significantly across facilities and the health care providers. The lack of comprehensive information about these, limits the patients' ability to make the best choice. Therefore, ICMH provides a list of health care professionals, therapists, facilities, CAM professionals, etc., all in one place so that the consumers can choose the best care. Here, the consumers will be able to rate and review health care professionals and facilities.
Easy Access to Second Opinion
At times, either because of access issues or lack of complete confidence, patients and caregivers wish to get a second opinion on a diagnosis and / or treatment. ICMH has built a multi-specialty collaboration to provide access to physicians and other healthcare providers where in patients and caregivers can ask questions, seek additional clarifications, or just get a second opinion without going out of the comfort of their home. ICMH also believes that a second opinion in serious and debilitating conditions is generally a good practice to reduce medical errors, facilitate accurate and quick diagnosis, and ensure best treatment.
Personalized Health Tools
Although there are a plethora of health tools that are available for the patients, most fall short of delivering the intended benefit. ICMH has thoughtfully developed few simple personalized health tools to make healthcare management easy and simple. The objective is to motivate patients to make lasting lifestyle changes to improve their overall health.
ICMH is fully committed to help patients improve their overall health. To accomplish this mission, ICMH has partnered with governmental agencies, private organizations, and international non-profit organizations to generate objective data regarding safety and efficacy of CAM therapies.
