If your child is an athlete at any level, most likely he is going to need a sports physical, or a preparticipation physical examination (PPE).
The PPE helps determine whether or not it's safe for your child to partipcate in a particular sport. PPE's are a requirement in most states for children and teens that are starting a new sport or beginning a new athletic season. Most Doctors agree that getting a PPE is very important, even if you live in a state where it is not a requirement.
With CareSync as your family health record, you're in control of the healthcare information that is going to be required when you are getting the PPE. Having instant, portable access to past medical history, medications, family history, and health conditions, all in the palm of your hand, not only saves you time and money, it allows you to get the most out of your appointment.
You can use the CareSync Visit Manager to organize, track, and document the PPE appointment.
- Add pre-visit tasks and notes to the appointment so you don't forget any pertinent questions that you may want to ask the doctor.
- Link your child's old x-rays, pertinent lab results, and other tests and procedures to the appointment and present them to the Dr so he can be up to date on any injuries that could have occured over the past year.
By owning and controling your child's health records, you're able to streamline the visit, save time by not chasing down records and duplicating forms, and most importantly, know that you're in control of your family's health.
If you haven't gotten your family's information into CareSync, there is no time like the present. Sign up for CareSync today, and take control of your health! Oh, and good luck to all of the budding athletes out there--we hope you have a safe and successful athletic season!
