IHM was founded in 2010 by Charles Smith, an ER and ICU nurse. He saw the need for patients to have a simple, easy to use way to organize their medical information while promoting communication between care providers and educating the patient. The result was the Healthcare Interactive Patient Portfolio system, with components designed for hospitals, patients and physician offices. In 2011, Medicare began offering the Annual Wellness Visit to it's beneficiaries. The purpose and requirements of the Annual Wellness Visit dovetailed perfectly with the HIPP system, so the AWV Portfolio was developed to provide a template for physicians to complete the visit, while providing a comprehensive Personal Health Record for patients.
