Electronic health records are a brilliant idea, in theory. The reality, however, is that the information they contain is at risk of human error. From the initial data entry, to the multiple access points as new notations are added, the risk of error is significant.

Medical providers keep records on your behalf, but they’re often filled with errors. A solution to this is to retain your own set of information which only you can access. With this personal ‘data-set’ you will have your own, private, master source of information. You can use it to double check and, if necessary, correct the information that doctors and other medical providers keep on record.

With your correct information in your hands you can more effectively advocate on your own behalf, and for your loved ones.
