YourPropertyToday.com encourages you to remember to request your medical records from your physician’s office when moving. Medical records are something that few people think about when moving, but are a really important set of records to keep track of.
There’s a lot of information to remember, and in many ways, keeping track of your medical history is just as much work as going through all of the exams, tests, and operations, which is why we are advocates of the MedicMinder.The MedicMinder is a single source record-keeping system for medical and drug history and family history, including contact numbers for doctors, pharmacies, insurance companies, and more.
While most health care will occur in the physicians’ office, treatment also occurs in the emergency room or medical clinics. When services are provided anywhere other than the physicians’ office, the health records may not be available to the treating physician. It can be distressing to realize the records needed are at your previous doctor’s office, perhaps thousands of miles away, because of the recent move. When using the MedicMinder to keep track of all your health records you’ll have all the information any physician needs easily available.
Another option is to have your physician professionals mail the documents. Unless you have already selected doctors in your new hometown, the records won’t be sent until you do. Many times, the shipping of medical records is not a high priority in a doctor’s office and it could take a month or two for your new doctors to receive them. Are you willing to take the risk?
The MedicMinder has thought of everything so that you don’t have to in your time of stress. It provides peace of mind for you or a caregiver – the knowledge that all pertinent medical and drug history is documented in one comprehensive, easy to use system. No second-guessing in an emergency – reach for the MedicMinder and you will be assured that vital and accurate information is at your fingertips.
The MedicMinder is a single source record-keeping system for medical and drug history, treatment record, including important contact numbers, for doctors, pharmacies, insurance companies, and more. Simply stated, the MedicMinder is “Trusted by Caring Families.”
