Electronic medical records propelling South Florida tech hub growth

Imagine if you never had to fill out another patient information form at a doctor’s office again. That’s the promise of a new portable patient health record service developed by Boca Raton-based InfoPeHR. For $35, patients can buy a credit card-sized USB drive that can hold their records — including high-resolution medical images — for a lifetime, said InfoPeHR owner Bernard Brigonnet. Brigonnet is among several South Florida entrepreneurs who are developing high-tech solutions for health record storage, contributing, they hope, to less expensive health care. The companies, which include Boca Raton-based Modernizing Medicine and CareCloud in Miami, are helping to establish South Florida as a hub for health-based technological innovation.
