Maintaining a Personal Health Record

Managing your medications

It is important to keep a written list of your medications that can be accessed by caregivers and family members.

Your health information is probably scattered across many different providers and facilities.

Keeping complete, updated, and easily accessible health records means you can play a more active role in your healthcare. Sharing this information with providers is especially helpful during care transitions (for instance, when being discharged from a hospital).
