Health Records for Your Kids Now in the Palm of Your Hand

By the time a child becomes an adult, he or she will have seen about 18.7 different doctors, according to a Practice Fusion survey. Seeing that many doctors can make it tough to keep up with all their medical records, including vaccination and immunization paperwork. Consider, too, that the average medical record is 13 pages long, which means the average American has a health record of 200 pages in nearly 19 various locations.

AppMotherKnowsWith the help of technology and Web 2.0, those frustrating days for parents can now be a thing of the past. Now there are apps that can securely digitize your child’s health records, readily accessible whenever medical forms are needed.
