On April 21, 2008, Bayer HealthCare announced the launch of EZ-Log Web Client, a new online tool for hemophilia patients and healthcare providers to record and track their treatment infusions on the EZ-Log Web site.
“With EZ-Log’s Web Client application, our clinic can use one program to manage treatment and monitor compliance for all our hemophilia patients, regardless of their treatment needs,” said Katie Westover, patient services coordinator, Milwaukee Comprehensive Center for Bleeding Disorders. “This tool gives us the ability to connect directly with individual patients electronically and allows patients to easily update their own records from anywhere.”
“We are pleased with the added convenience that Bayer’s new EX-Log Web Client will provide for both patients and healthcare professionals,” said Terry Tenbrunsel, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bayer HealthCare. “We’re committed to continue providing more choices for those living with hemophilia while working with healthcare professionals to find new ways to help improve compliance.”
Another option for capturing and transmitting hemophilia patient data is Bayer’s EZ-Log PDA, (personal digital assistant, a type of a handheld computer). Bayer’s PDA records a patient’s treatment data by real-time scanning of the barcodes on treatment packaging.
