When you show up to a doctor’s office for the first time, one of the first things they ask you about is your medical history and what prescriptions you are taking. Keeping track of all this information is difficult, after all, how are you supposed to remember a small condition you had a few years ago? With a simple iPhone app, you can prevent this from being a problem ever again. With My Medical Info, you can keep all of your important medical data in one place.
With My Medical Info, not only can you keep track of your medical history, but you can also keep track of your whole families’ medical records as well. Keeping track of your children’s medical history is just as important as keeping track of your own, and this app will let you do that with ease.
Best of all, My Medical Info is available for free from the App Store for a limited time. If you want to keep track of your medical records without spending a dime, this is the time to download My Medical Info, before it goes back to $0.99.
Obviously, the main use of the app is keeping track of medical histories. To do this, you will need to make a profile for each family member. To do so, tap the Profile button and click “Add Profile.” From here, you will enter the person’s full name and a nickname if you should so choose. Once finished, click “Save,” and the profile will be ready to go.
Once you have created a profile, you can start entering the medical history for that person. Simply tap the name from the profile screen, and it will bring you to the section where you fill in all available data for that person. You enter information such as insurance, medical team, health history, and medications.
One feature that is particularly useful for health history and medications is that it features a giant list of pills and conditions. This makes it easier to log them because you don’t have to worry about spelling them correctly. The lists are long, but if for some reason a condition or medicine you need is not listed, simply tap the “Other” button and you can manually enter something.
The app also comes with reminders, which breaks down into sections for appointments, refills, and medication dosages. This will help you make sure not to forget any of the important things you need to do in order to keep healthy.
The last section of this app is called Share. In here, you can email your medical profile if you need to. You can also share it with another iOS device running the app. Simply tap the button called “Sync Profile,” choose another device running the app, and you will be ready to share the medical profile with another device.
On the settings page, you can place a password lock on the app, so if you loan your phone to someone, they cannot get access to your private medical records.
If you are looking for a way to keep track of your medical records and medications, this is the app for you. Not only does it come with those features, but as a bonus, it also has reminders built in. The app is only free for a limited time, so get to the App Store and download it before it goes back to full price!
