If you’re like us, you’re probably watching to see how Health Care Reform is going to affect the way we manage our health. There has been a lot of talk about Accountable Care Organizations, Individual Mandates, and more. One thing that probably will occur no matter what happens with the changes in the way we deal with our health is the widespread transition to Electronic Health Records (EHR). These virtual folders can help patients and family members to manage their own health and empower each person in their health records maintenance.
Vaccination records are a great example of what you can do to stay ahead of the curve on your own treatment. By proactively requesting your own health records and keeping a copy for future providers, you can save a lot of time!
