SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--myMediConnect, the personal health record (PHR) portal available from MediConnect Global, today announced the enhanced Wellness Tracker, which enables users to easily create and track custom fitness and diet plans, as well as take advantage of a large library of meal plans created by professional dieticians.
“It is like having an online personal trainer and dietitian all in one,” said Amy Rees Anderson, CEO of MediConnect Global. “The wellness tracker gives consumers the ability to take even more control of their own healthcare by empowering them with the tools to take a more proactive approach to their wellness in a completely secure and private setting.”
The enhanced Wellness Tracker is the latest addition to myMediConnect, one of four PHR systems chosen by the Obama administration for the Medicare PHR Choice pilot program. This simple, online resource can help anyone with a desire improve their health. It includes a meal planner where users can create daily meal plans that can be tailored to fit specific caloric goals or restrictions, nutrition preferences (low-carb, vegan, etc.) as well as the type of cuisine they prefer (American, Asian, Mexican, etc.).
The Wellness Tracker program has been created by a team of experts in the health industry. Professionals in nutrition, fitness and behavioral sciences personally combed over each diet plan and fitness routine to provide ideal health solutions for any individual.
“Our system is created for use by anyone, from the healthiest individuals to individuals with special diet needs, such as those with diabetes or heart disease. Everyone will find these new features to be incredibly useful,” Anderson said. “The Wellness Tracker not only tells you what you should eat on a daily basis, but it also automatically generates a grocery list for the day, week, month or any period of time. You can even access it on your iPhone or iPad to refer to it on the go.”
Along with the diet plan, users can create a personal workout routine tailored to their needs – whether it’s cardio, strength training, or even water aerobics – and the online tool shows how to do each exercise with easy-to-understand animations. These fitness programs can be tailored to target specific goals such as calories burned or weight loss. In addition, users can track blood glucose levels, blood pressure, medications taken, weight, height, or other fitness and wellness goals.
Wellness Tracker also includes a quit smoking and weight gain/loss calculator and provides health education from sources like the Harvard Health Newsletter.
