Who We Are

White Pine Systems, LLC (dba SPINN) is dedicated to delivering a complete solution for consumer-engaged healthcare that compliments existing health information technology investments. Our Internet-based patient engagement systems are at the core of the rapidly emerging “connected health” movement. Connected health uses technology to provide access to critical personal health information, improve communication between healthcare providers, patients and their families, and better manage chronic conditions to facilitate living normal lives.

SPINN

SPINN, Secure Personal Information and Notification Network, is a confidential and secure online service that allows you to access and organize your health information. You determine who has access to it and you decide when others can view it. SPINN provides a secure communication system that allows you to form a personal health network by connecting family, guardians and healthcare providers to share information and notifications in a medical emergency.

How does information get in to SPINN?
Information is entered in SPINN in several ways. You can manually enter information for yourself and for members of your personal health network. You can also allow SPINN healthcare providers to send automatic updates. You decide which healthcare providers update your health record and you decide when to stop allowing them to update it. You can also allow other healthcare providers who connect with Microsoft HealthVault to update your HealthVault record. Since SPINNphr is connected to HealthVault, any information entered to your HealthVault record can be viewed through your SPINNphr account. There are a number of other vendors who offer solutions that operate with SPINNphr or HealthVault. Information in HealthVault entered through these applications can also be accessed through your SPINNphr account.
