Carisk offers information and programs to promote the well-being of its Members.
PERSONAL HEALTH RECORD
Creating your own personal health record (PHR) is a great way to take charge of your health and well-being. A personal health record is your own collection of information about your health. This is different than an electronic health record that is maintained by your doctor’s office.
Having a personal health record can help if you move, switch healthcare Providers, or seek treatment when you are out of town and you need to provide your health history. It can also help in an emergency or urgent situation when it is difficult to remember information correctly.
Here are some suggestions about information you may want to include in your PHR:
- Names and contact information for your healthcare Providers
- Emergency contact
- Health insurance information
- The current medications you are taking along with dosages
- Genetic/hereditary conditions in your family
- A list of major illnesses and surgeries
- Recent results from doctor visits
- Test results
- Eye and dental records
