Be your own advocate.
It was Bette Davis who infamously quipped: “Old age isn’t for sissies.” And boy was she right! These days, navigating the world of healthcare can seem like climbing a mountain to get what you need. Yet, it’s not just the elderly who suffer with accumulating health concerns, medications and allergies. All of us at one time or another become consumers of healthcare. Were you born in a hospital? You became a consumer of health care as soon as you entered this world!! As a consumer of health care, you do your part to pick competent health care professionals. You trust them to provide quality care. Now you can prepare for your future visits and improve your communication with health care professionals with MyMedicInfo.
We all hope that we are able to avoid health problems and unexpected accidents. Inevitably, the numbers say that it has to happen to someone. If that someone is you, you should be prepared. If a health incident befell you, how could you be sure that the EMTs and medical staff would know what medications you take and what allergies you have when the ambulance arrives? Since many of us are unprepared for this situation, the best the medical staff can do is guess. Do you really want others giving you medicine or treatment if they don’t know what prescriptions you are already taking? Many people, with known medical conditions and allergies, wear medical alert jewelry, such as a medical alert bracelet. Not a bad start, but in this day and age, we could certainly do much better.
