Choose from a variety of speks to display your vital health information at a glance.
Manage all personal, emergency, insurance, family and caregiver information.

Request and receive communications and medical records from your healthcare providers.
Doctors can have 24/7 access to your entire health record when you provide your Healthspek access code.
The Healthspek product is constantly evolving — we continue to incorporate user feedback to implement new features and functionality to make the iPad app and mobile website precisely suited to your individual needs. This means the power is in your hands.
Here are some new additions in Version 1.2:
Request Charts From Your Doctor
You can now request your doctor to send your chart electronically to your Healthspek record.
That means you can manage all of the information you input yourself, as well as information sent from your doctors. It drives home the idea that you own your chart.
Unique Email Address
You now have a unique Healthspek email address, as well as a unique Healthspek upload webpage.
Both of these addresses can be given to doctors, lab companies, and other external recourse so that they can send (or upload) documents directly to your Healthspek record.
New Feature: Legal Documents
Users can now upload living wills, powers of attorney and other legal documents into the Healthspek record, allowing for a secure and easily accessible solution for those who may need to view it.
Though this can be a revolutionary resource for anyone, it holds special significance for those with chronic medical conditions, as well as those serving in a caretaker role for aging relatives.
