Some suggestions for where to store copies: in your handbag, in your car’s glove compartment and in a first aid or medical emergency kit. You could try making one small enough to fit on an index card to keep in your wallet. Consider putting a copy on your refrigerator or inside a kitchen cupboard as well. There are three main ways to keep your PHR: on paper, using software on your computer, or online. All three are useful in their own way, but each offers tradeoffs in terms of convenience and accessibility.
Paper. Perhaps you’ve kept your health records in a paper file at your home, and whenever you needed it, you knew just where to find it. Ask for a copy of your record after each doctor’s visit or procedure. You can then create your own personal health record (PHR) by consolidating the information, including diagnoses, medicatio.
How to organize your health records GO DIGITAL.. Type up lists of your medications, vaccinations, and family history, and scan copies of imaging and other OR STICK WITH PAPER.. If you’re more comfortable with paper records, keep the most important information accessible so KEEP THE.
Regardless of how you choose to keep your personal health information, you may consider keeping records of the following: Current medications and pharmacy information Immunizations Allergies Health history (including past procedures, surgeries, illnesses, and family history) Test and lab results. If you see multiple doctors and they don’t use the same EHR system, a PHR is a good way to keep all of your health information in one place. A PHR also empowers you to manage your health between visits.
For example, a PHR enables you to: Track and assess your health. Get data directly. Some health apps make you manually type in or scan in your health information.
Electronically transferring your electronic health record directly into the app is often safer — and makes it easier to keep your health information accurate and up to date. There are software programs designed to help you keep your own health records. Some are free, others have a price tag. If you don’t opt for one of these programs, you may simply choose to use a word processor and scanner to generate files on your own.
Once you have developed your records, you can transfer the files to a thumb drive to take with. Where to store your personal health record: Save electronic versions of your medical records obtained from the hospital in a file on your computer, or on a shared drive (like Google Drive) Organize physical copies of information in a three-ring binder or file folders Enter everything into a web-based PHR portal or computer-based software. In recent years, a trend has emerged that has seen patients taking responsibility for the storage and maintenance of their own medical records.
Unless you are in a health care system which provides you access to your electronic medical records (EMR), you will need to take steps to request copies for yourself.
