October Is Organize Your Medical Information Month! 

  • It’s important to keep medical paperwork organized for yourself or your family, if you’re a caregiver. Creating a personal health record (PHR) can help families keep on top of doctor visits, medications, and insurance documents. It can also help when considering changes to any existing care plans and can be done in 5 easy steps!
  • Where or how do you get started on organizing medical documents? The organizing your medical records resource can help identify questions to ask your doctor and which documents to include.
  • Managing your medication and logging side effects can help you or a family member create a more complete health picture. This can be shared with your physician in detail, if needed.
