At the pharmacy. At the doctor’s office. At the family meeting. As a caregiver, there will never be a shortage of times when having your loved one’s health records – health history, medications and current treatment plan, doctor/pharmacy contact information - is crucial. Using an app on your smart device puts that information at your fingertips in an instant.
Ease of access isn’t the only benefit of using an app to manage health information. Some other ways apps make this task a bit easier to manage. With the information being all in one place, the process of keeping it updated is simpler. Some apps, such as MyChart (available for both Apple and Android devices), Health Gorilla, and Healow allow health care providers to upload current information directly.
Securely share information with other family members or health care providers. Apps like CareZone allow to share health information, as well as any additional notes you have made! We know you have a lot to keep track of and making use of apps can make this aspect of your job a bit easier.
