I should know my daughter's medication by now. She's been on them for a few years, but it still slips my mind. Since we've added CareSync to our health routine, I now feel like the most knowledgable parent around. Who doesn't need a little ego boost every once in a while?
The perfect example of this happened when I took my daughter to the Doctor yesterday.
We went to the pediatrician because she was having a hard time with a really bad cold. Armed with CareSync on my iPhone, I knew that I was in control of her healthcare. The Dr. came in and started talking with me and asking questions about her ongoing and new health conditions. He finally got to the part where she asked about which medications she is currently taking. Normally, this is the part where I say "I can't remember." Not this time..... This Dad had CareSync. I opened the CareSync application and recited the names of those medications with the confidence of a Dr. I felt in control for once!
CareSync DOES put you in control of your healthcare. I also inputed her antibiotics and the notes from the Dr. before I even left the facility. I didn't even need to call my wife and tell her. All she had to do was login to CareSync and read what I wrote. That's powerful.
There is something to be said for the confidence that one feels when they recognize they are in control of their family's healthcare. Being equipped with the tools to be an active participant in her care left me feeling confident that I am doing my most important job, and doing it well.
