Are you a veteran? Or is a close friend or family member of yours a veteran? If so, we want to tell you about the many benefits that veterans and their families can enjoy with access to digital medical records. It's an exciting time where new technology makes it easy and secure to find your records, even as a veteran! So if you’re ready to operate more effectively in your healthcare journey, read on to see why taking control of your digital health data will empower an understanding of your health and remove the stress of health organization from your life.
Keep a Picture of Your Health
Many veterans receive medical care from both VA healthcare facilities as well as civilian healthcare facilities over the course of a lifetime. But few ever get to see all their health data consolidated in one place at one time. Veterans, with your digital health records you have the ability to see all your data in one place. Gaining insight into up-to-date personal health data allows patients to know the trends and patterns in their health history. And having a clear picture of your health history will allow any veteran to effectively communicate with healthcare providers and insurance companies to receive the best care at the best cost.
Looking After a Spouse, Sibling, or Family Member
For many of us, the only thing more important than our own health is the health of our family members and loved ones. One of the best ways to improve care, for anyone looking after a veteran, is by keeping track of their digital health data for them. Free digital health apps like OneRecord make it easy for veteran family members to securely access their family’s medical data right from their smartphone, with permission from the veteran of course. We need to take care of each other and ensure our loved ones are healthy and getting the best care possible.
P.S. you’ll also be saving time by not rummaging around sorting through paper records, too.
Consolidate Medical Documents
When it comes to medical history and medical records it can be difficult to know where to even begin. You have your health records from childhood, your records from clinics or circumstantial procedures, and your records from your regularly scheduled appointments.
But how can you keep track of all these documents and information? By keeping all your medical documents in a safe digital space you can skip the process of tracking down multiple healthcare providers and the long calls with insurance companies. Plus you won’t need to keep a filing cabinet in the middle of your home. Having all your medical documents in the same place makes the idea of managing your healthcare a lot less daunting. With OneRecord you can consolidate all your medical documents and have them at your fingertips, whenever you need them.
