Most parents have a file box, bag of envelopes or even a precarious pile of documents related to their family’s health records and previous doctor visits. While it can be great to have a location where any needed forms or test results can be found, there is actually a much easier way to keep track of all medical records.
Electronic Personal Health Records
Electronic personal health records, or PHRs, offer families the security and convenience of storing all medical files in one online location. This can be especially beneficial if your family is moving and needs important medical files in transit. But electronic health records can also benefit the physicians who tend to your family.
Online Data Services
The option above requires you to input all of your family’s medical health data manually, which can be an exhaustive effort if you have a lot of files to input. Thankfully, services such as MotherKnows will not only input your data for you, but contact health professionals on your behalf to obtain that data.
Services like MotherKnows use the highest encryption of 256-bit to keep your records safe, in addition to using practices for data collection that are in line with industry standards.
