The Top 6 Reasons Why CareSync is for You

Posted by The CareSync Team

Apr 19, 2015 12:00:00 PM

We all know how important health is. Health determines how we think, act, and live every day. Since health is so crucial to our life, it's important that we know how to properly manage and understand all of the factors related to it. Without a background in medicine or healthcare, however, it can be confusing to take charge of all of our medical records and find a way to understand them. For those who are caregivers, or those who have chronic conditions, managing your health is especially crucial.

1. CareSync gathers all of your medical records in one place

CareSync pulls your medical records and puts them in one, easy-to-access location. With just a couple of clicks, you can access medical records from an appointment you had a week ago, or even one that you had years ago.

The Huffington Post's Lottie Ryan has suffered from chronic illness and daily pain for the last 17 years. Her piece inspires others with chronic illness to start 2015 in a special way. She says:

Posted by Courtney Larned

I tripped over an interesting article last week, and bookmarked it away. I finally got back to it over the weekend, and I've since been thinking about the whole "it takes a village" concept, and how applicable that is to managing health, or more appropriately, managing illness.

The article was in Medical Economics, and discussed how patients are wanting to share their medical information with people outside of the traditional care team of doctors, but there are challenges and regulatory obstacles to get family, caregivers, friends, and others involved in care access to the information.

Individuals who serve as a caregiver can often become overwhelmed with caregiver duties.  The job is in itself very difficult and can include much stress, feelings of being overburdened, and worry about keeping track of everything that needs to be handled, including remembering or having access to enormous amounts of information.
