Marietta, Georgia (PR) August 14, 2008YourPropertyToday.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 packing, moving and unpacking 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.

You could have your physician mail the documents. 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.

Marietta, Georgia (PR) August 13, 2008 – Most people are ill equipped to answer medical and drug questions when faced with an emergency. Often the information provided to medical staff may be incorrect as it is being reconstructed from memory at a time of confusion, uncertainty and emotional distress.

If your aging parents were to have a medical emergency, could you answer a doctor’s questions regarding their medical and drug history? Do you know the names, phone and fax numbers of all their doctors? Do you know a senior who is struggling to balance multiple medications? Do you have heart, lung or kidney disease? Are you a cancer survivor? In an emergency, time is of the essence. Seconds can mean the difference between life and death. Most of us can’t rely on our memory in times of great stress. Are you willing to take the risk?

The MedicMinder provides peace of mind for caregivers – 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.

You will find the MedicMinder to be a single source record-keeping system for medical and drug history, including contact numbers for doctors, pharmacies, insurance companies, and more.

The MedicMinder was created from my personal need to care for both aging and ill parents. The stress of trying to keep their medical appointments straight, document their medical history, and constant struggle to remember what medications which one was taking and when, caused me great anxiety.

Using the MedicMinder gives me quick and easy access to medical and drug history, as well as contact numbers for family and doctors. Having this vital information at your fingertips reduces guesswork and stress so often felt during times of medical crisis.

I’m certain that the MedicMinder will become as invaluable a tool for you, as a caregiver, as it has been for my family and myself. I welcome your feedback and hope that you will share this press release and its information with other caregivers.

Marietta, Georgia (PR) August 11, 2008 – An article posted on the NIH Senior Health site reports that people age 65 and older take more prescription and over-the-counter medicines than any other age group. It is common for these individuals to take multiple drugs daily because they have more long-term, chronic illnesses such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

It is also common for one in five people over the age of 65 experiences moderate to severe memory impairment. Making the MedicMinder a perfect companion for tracking their medications. From why they take the medication, in what form they take it (pill, liquid, shot…), the color and shape, the dosage, any special instructions regarding the medication given to them by the subscribing physician and what time a day (am, pm) they take it.

To reduce potential risks and side effects medications must be taken as directed. Organizing medications can be difficult and a struggle for the older population, especially if they take numerous medications each day, at different times, and with different instructions.

The MedicMinder system makes medication management easier and helps to guarantee they are taking medication as directed. The MedicMinder should be kept in a place where it is easy to refer to. Family and caregivers should be made aware that the MedicMinder system is being used and where it is located at all times.

A list of medications is an ideal record to have regardless of whether you need medication reminders or not. The information is important when physicians prescribe new medicine or in any emergency. The MedicMinder is a comprehensive health record-keeping system available at http://www.themedicminder.com. There is a special tabbed section that assists with medication tracking.

Tracking medication is only one part of this dynamic record-keeping system. It is as important to keep track of all health conditions, medications, allergies, past surgeries, financial information, and other items related to health and personal care. The MedicMInder has a tabbed section for all of this and more.

The MedicMinder provides peace of mind – 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 be assured that vital and accurate information is in reach, including contact numbers for doctors, pharmacies, insurance companies, and more.

The MedicMinder is a dynamic way to keep track of personal health records. For further information about the MedicMinder, contact us.
