Let’s face it, just because a patient is battling Cancer doesn’t mean all the sudden they’re going to become a recluse. Keeping accurate personal records is absolutely essential when receiving long-term care. Each facility or doctor involved has a separate medical record. Cancer Trakker combines these separate records into a single, more complete personal medical record. “Traveling can become quite an issue when taking everything into consideration as far as medical care goes, not to mention the stress of worrying about if something should happen?” said Author Amber Bowden. MedTrakker is so portable it can be taken anywhere.
