MediSwipe will provide at least 5,000 new digital record cards for patients in conjunction with three MediPay kiosks to Michigan based dispensaries. Patients will have their medical records scanned to an encrypted patient card, and use the cards for record keeping of transactions,, with the MediPay kiosks providing alternative forms of cash payments. MediSwipe shall receive monthly digital record storage fees similar to a virtual medical dropbox and patient portal application, as well as transaction fees similar to an ATM designed specifically around healthcare transactions
All medical data will be stored with state-of-the-art security and encryption technology to protect users' data. Records are stored on servers which are housed in HIPAA compliant data centers in the USA. Each account is secured by a unique combination of User ID and passwords. In addition to passwords and data encryption, data access will be protected through multiple levels of network security to prevent unauthorized access and to help protect the privacy and integrity of customer data.
Dispensary and pharmacy patients have complete ownership and control of their medical data 24x7x365.

The MediSwipe digital storage application is a secure and user-friendly way to backup and manage your medical records than with the MediSwipe electronic, web-based software and records storage patient ID cards.
"The MediPay Kiosks will provide a cash in /coupon voucher or payment card out option to reduce cash payment only options for medicine, and provide that service for about the same transaction fee as an ATM", stated B. Michael Freidman for MediSwipe. The second generation MediPay kiosks will provide direct payment to the states for state tax revenue ahead of today's proposed legislation in Oregon and Colorado. We would hope to have several thousand new patients on our digital health management system over the next two quarters," added Freidman.
