Recently, we announced some exciting developments with the healow (Health & Online Wellness) patient engagement platform -- integration with industry-leading wearable devices and fitness trackers.

Essential to connecting all of this technology and making it meaningful is an electronic health record (EHR) system that acts as a central database that provides doctors with easy access to crucial patient information.
