3 Simple Ways to Organize Your Elder’s Medical Records

Did you know that 20% of Medicare patients have five or more chronic conditions, see 14

different physicians a year and fill 50 prescriptions annually! That’s a lot to manage, for both

the patients and the healthcare professionals.

To ensure your elderly loved one is receiving the best possible care and medications are

working properly, it’s critical to keep accurate medical records of all conditions, physicians,

medications, etc.

While the thought of tackling piles of paperwork may seem overwhelming, it can save you a lot

of time and money and prevent unnecessary health problems down the road.

Here are three simple ways to organize your elder’s medical records to help ensure accurate

diagnoses and treatment:

Home Helpers Medical History Organizer: This simple document outlines all critical medical

information, including identification, blood type, existing conditions, medications and

emergency contact information.

In the event of an emergency, EMTs will have easy access to lifesaving information. The vinyl

pouch features a reusable sticky back that can be applied to virtually any non-porous surface,

and the sticker adheres to the front door to alert EMTs where to find the information.

Create a medical journal: Roll up your sleeves and get crafty! All you need is a three-ring binder

and some tabs. Separate into sections, including:

Physician contact information

Appointment calendar

Insurance information

Prescriptions

Receipts and financial paperwork
