Keep a history of all your visits as far back as you can remember. Tip #2 is to select a software program that best works for you. The third tip is asking doctors and insurance companies for access to all your medical information. Be sure to always ask for copies of your medical records at each visit. Next and most importantly “be prepared”. Go to each doctor’s visit with a copy of your records.
Most people do not have enough hours in their day, and compiling all this information on their own may seem impossible. Tip #5 is finding a service that can assist you in compiling all your personal medical information. Tip #6 is to always keep your medical history current. Tip #7 stay informed of new medical recommendations. Tip #8; be sure that you can access your personal health records when you are away from home or during a natural disaster. Tip #9, do not overwhelm yourself, get started slowly; organize the records of one family member at a time. And last put certainly not least tip #10 is be prepared with a thorough medical history so that you can take control of your health at critical times.
