SSG Consulting, Lake Bluff, Ill, has launched its new Web site,

EMRapproved is designed to streamline access to all of the technology required to implement and maintain electronic medical records. It allows users to access computer hardware, software, companion services, medical devices, and complete solutions.

Instant, Web-based access to current and complete information will allow orthodontists to instantly transmit records to referrers, and will also allow patients to maintain a personal health record or PHR. The PHR is a tool designed to pull together all of a person’s health-related information for easy immediate access and portability. EMRapproved also provides assistance and tools to help patients create and maintain this new service. The site provides free access and a live help line to walk you through the setup of PHRs. It also offers a free keychain flash drive on which to store PHRs.
