Yes, we do care for every patient. As we all know, our health is the most important asset we own and we all know that it is hard to be successful in life without good health. So, we need to stay healthy. However, it is getting harder to stay healthy when healthcare costs are skyrocketing, and on top of that, the lack of centralized patient medical records is taking a toll on us. This is not only increasing our healthcare costs, but it is also causing misdiagnosis, long-term disability, or potential fatalities due to miscommunication between doctors, patients and other service providers. We need to stop this, and that's why we have built this site for you to take charge of your own medical records. Our intention is to provide you with the right information, tools and technology so that you can take control of your own medical records, make the right decisions, and share your medical records with your medical professionals when needed so you can avoid misdiagnosis, delays and potential health hazards. This site will help you to organize all your health-related information (e.g. Personal, Medical history, Alergies, Test Results, Privacy information, etc.), and your other records (e.g. X-rays, prescriptions, etc.) in this site. You will also be able to keep your children’s or other family members’ health records in one place so that you can share those records with your medical professionals easily. So, don’t wait.

As we stated above, the lack of centralized medical records may cause misdiagnosis, long-term disability, or potential death. One of the major medical journals reported that "Missed or wrong diagnoses made up the lion's share of U.S. malpractice payouts -- which totaled nearly $39 billion -- during the past 25 years, finds a new study of more than 350,000 claims." (Quoted from MONDAY, April 22, 2013; HealthDay News). Dr. David Troxel, medical director of The Doctors Company, a malpractice insurer based in Napa, Calif., said, “The study provides valuable information to caregivers about medical errors. I believe that the disclosure of this information will enhance patient safety." Troxel also said, "Patients can also play an important role in reducing the incidence of diagnostic errors by providing their doctor with an accurate medical history, adhering to the prescribed follow-up plan, keeping return visit appointments to discuss abnormal test results, and asking questions to clarify instructions they don't clearly understand." So, if the bottom line is to avoid severe disability or even death, due to misdiagnosis caused by lack of medical records, we need to take charge of our own medical records so that we can share that information with our doctors in order to save our health, without waiting for the government or major corporations to come to our rescue.How will it help?
It will give us a peace of mind by knowing, “I’m not in the dark. I'm in control of my own medical records, and I don’t have to depend on others”. Read Ms. Regina Holliday’s statement here and and find out her experience. She is an artist and mother of two young children. As her husband was dying of cancer, Ms. Holliday fought a protracted battle to get access to her husband’s medical records. As she said, “In the following days, I fought for access to my husband’s medical record. Finally, I was told it would be .73 cents per page – for a huge document! – and a 21-day wait to see my husband's medical record in the hospital in which he had been continuously hospitalized. I couldn't believe it.” Now the question is, do you really want to do that? Do you want to be on her situation? No, you don’t, especially when you have a choice.
