Keep Your Own Medical Records

When you are under the pressure of having a medical ailment and talking to your doctor about your past, it can be hard to remember important details about your medical history. You may leave the appointment only to later think of something you should have mentioned. To avoid a situation like this, it helps to keep your own medical records.

The key is to put your documents together before you need them. When you or a loved one needs medical attention, you may not have the time or the resources to gather health information. So, it’s important that, before an emergency, you have a Medical Life List on hand for you and for each of your loved ones. In a nutshell, your Medical Life List is your own personal medical record created by you and updated by you. In this video, I help you get started.
