As we continue to evolve the Zweena Health platform, we look to our members to inspire us to create a better tool.

One of the pieces of feedback we received from a recent survey of our members was:

Unstructured and Structured Data in Healthcare and Digital Health

July 30, 2014 by


Amidst healthcare circles, the idea of structured data versus unstructured data has been talked about for years. It’s a huge hurdle for all organizations associated with the healthcare industry.

As health devices and apps evolve, why does it seem we’re having the same discussion about structured and unstructured data sets?

Zweena Health, along with its CEO and founder John Phelan, has written about structured data in healthcare on an ongoing basis. Here’s a list of articles to help gain a better understanding of why this rift exists and how (and why!) Zweena transforms unstructured data into structured data:

Healthcare Thought of the Day: Build Your Practice with the Patient Being First

Who’s the most important person involved in the healthcare process?

The patient.

How does Zweena help providers put the patient’s needs first?

Zweena Health provides a personal health record that goes above and beyond. Not only being an online spot for all your (and your family’s!) medical records, Zweena Health can actively collect your medical records on your behalf! This saves patients the time and hassle of tracking down every medical document.

Because, unfortunately, becoming a patient can happen in an instant. Being prepared, and having all your medical information in one spot, can be a lifesaver.

Have any examples of practices that have put the needs of patients first? Give them a shout-out in the comments below!

Add Providers

Tip: How to add a provider

The “Add Provider” screen allows you to search for an existing provider or add a new provider to the database.

Fill out as much detail as you have for your provider if not found in the database.

Not Found

Tip: Authorizing Record Collection

Be aware of the checkbox, “Link this Provider to a Member to enable record collection.”

This allows you to link a provider with a member in the Zweena account to enable record collection. After adding the provider, with the checkbox checked, you are asked to enable the collection of that provider’s records on behalf of the Zweena member. Select the Zweena member who is a patient of the provider and click “Authorize Record Collection.”

Authorize Record Collection

Please note: You will need to fill out a Authorization to Release Medical Records form with each new provider, per law requirements.

Zweena gives you the freedom to upload your own medical records!

There are ten quick-and-easy steps to this process:

  2. Step Two: Sign into your Zweena Health account.
  3. Step Three: Click on the “Zweena Health Records” tab.
  4. Step Four: Then click “Upload Documents” on the left (see below)
  5. Upload Documents

  6. Step Five: Select the individual you would like to upload medical documents to.
  7. Step Six: Find the scanned record by clicking “Choose File” to select the .PDF, .JPG, .PNG or .TIFF of the medical record on your local computer.

  9. Step Eight: This section allows you to sync the uploaded medical record with an existing provider in the account or to create a new provider.
