Doctors have less time to spend with each patient they see, insurance companies make medical decisions, and patients have lost trust in the health care system. Patients feel the need to be responsible for their own health. THE SAVARD HEALTH RECORD is an easy method of organizing and tracking your medical records and other important health information. People should have their own complete medical file, including copies of all blood tests, lists of allergies and medications, immunization history, eyeglass prescriptions, and the like. If you have to see a specialist or a new doctor on short notice or have to switch health plans, there may be a delay in gaining access to your medical files, and reports and test results can be lost or misfiled. Keeping track of your own health information makes sense. *Add and remove pages with the flexible 3-ring format *Dozens of helpful, easy-to-use charts (health journal, family medical history, vaccines and shots record) *Store prescription information, insurance cards, doctors' business cards, and appointment cards in the folders and pockets provided *Use the calendar to keep track of upcoming tests, examinations, needed immunizations, and medical refillsFrom the Inside Flap:
