Turns out that My Life Record Family Edition is an app that lets you manage your medical records… and more. The app claims to use Patent Pending technologies that enable you to maintain, view and organize your medical records on the iPhone or iPod Touch.
I can hear you saying ‘Ok, how the heck do you get your medical records into the software???’ A very good question… that was my first question as well. Turns out that My Life Record has an easy to use function that allows you to get your medical records from your doctor and into the app with ease. All you need to do is touch an icon within the app, and your iPhone will provide you with a fax number and code. Provide the fax number and code to your doctor, and all your doctor will need to do is print or write that code on the front of the fax and fax your chart. My Life Record will take the chart and tie it to your My Life Record profile, instantly creating an exact copy of your medical chart right on your device. If you’re worried about this being too much of a hassle for your physician, you shouldn’t be… This process is a simple fax, and he/she would have to do no more than he or she would wen giving your record to another physician for treatment or recommendations.
This is an insanely powerful tool to say the least. Having your medical record on hand, whenever you need it could be invaluable. Going on a long vacation to a far away place? Make sure you have your latest records in-hand, and off you go!
