I think it was Chris who a little while ago started some discussion about applications/software for personal health records. I can’t find the thread so I will start a new one. There are at least 4 applications that I know of. I use an application for my palm Treo called ProMed that my GP is impressed with. This s/w is probably has the most features of any that I have checked out but it lacks a Pc Desktop Companion. According to the compatibility list it will also work with a great number of PDA’s and smartphones – I believe – Check it out at e-medtools.com/pmdccompare.html You will also see 3 others listed there – What I like about ProMed is that can even track Peak Flow. Upon checking – the only one that seems to have the Desktop companion is Health File – pretty much like ProMed but with Companion s/w but no peak flow tracker. I am going to download the trial and see if it is what I want. Check this out for yourself if interested
Not too sure about personal medical tracking software. My dad uses a few blank 8.5x11 pages of paper and put free form info on them. He then places these populated pages in the top shelf of his fridge (in sealed large pill jar). He then re-freshes these pages every few months.
I keep an up to date paper in my wallet, and in the fridge, having been told by a few different police officers that that is where they look for info, and I keep an emergency contact person on my cell phonebook under 911 as that is also where they look.
