How It Works
The Health Power 101 Organizer is the answer to keeping-up with your health history and maintaining good health. This personal health organizer empowers you to take charge of your health. It will not only be your guide to staying healthy, but also your most important tool for organizing the details of your health history.
The Health Power 101 Organizer will provide critical information about you to your health care providers. And guess what? By maintaining your Health Power 101 Organizer, it can speak for you if you’re unable to talk due to a health problem or if you just feel uncomfortable expressing the details about your health. That’s right, just hand over your organizer to a doctor or other health care professional and they’ll have everything they need to take good care of you.
The Health Power 101 Organizer was created and designed by a physician to present your health information in a clear, organized, and easy to use manner.
- Organizes your health records—so you’ll never be overwhelmed by your health records again
- Keeps you safe—from being a victim of a medical error by keeping your personal health information organized and up-to-date
- Makes you a better caregiver to a loved one—this is achieved by providing you the ability to keep track of a loved one’s complicated health matters in an organized fashion
- Guides your health—by giving you the knowledge and a system of keeping track of critical disease screening tests so you know how to prevent common preventable diseases
The organizer is made of three parts.
Software: Using the Health Power 101 Organizer software, you will be able to organize, store and update personal health information for yourself and up to four family members. You will find that, although this is a very powerful computer program, using it is easy, fun and very intuitive.
From the comfort and safety of your home computer, you will be able to document your personal health history, including your emergency contacts, medication allergies, medication lists, medical conditions, family history, end-of- life preferences, and more. All of your vital personal health information will be organized and save into this unique program on your own home computer.
The program organizes your information into eight different sections: Personal information, allergies, medications, health conditions, providers, vaccinations, disease prevention and test follow-ups. And once you have entered your personal health information, you can then print out each section to include in your three ring binder to act as your own personal medication chart.
Also from within the computer program, you’ll be able to e-mail yourself, or a health care provider a single page from your profile, a certain section, or the entire profile—all in the widely used PDF format. You can also save a PDF copy of the forms to a thumb drive or other storage device.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Compatiable with Windows and Mac
Binder: This three-ring binder is THE place to store all your personal health records once the forms are completed and printed out from the computer program, or if you’re not a computer person and would rather complete the forms by hand, the binder comes with all the blank forms ready to complete.
Like the computer program, the binder is divided into eight organized sections. The binder is a durable, poly reinforced 1.5 inch capacity thre-ring binder which holds over three hundred and fifty 81/2″ x11″ sheets. What’s inside the binder:
- Over 50 forms that bring health information from multiple sources into one easily accessible location;
- Eight Mylar tab dividers (one for each section of the binder);
- Eight binder pocket pages that hold up to 20 sheets each;
- A business card holder that keeps the contact information of health care providers organized and easily at hand; and
- A detailed manual with easy-to-follow instructions for setting up your binder.
Health ID card: Using the interactive software, you’ll be able to easily produce this wallet-size card, which provides a brief review of a person’s health history for use in an emergency. This critical information could save your life, or that of a family member!
During a medical emergency we are often not able to communicate the important facts about our health history, like deadly medication allergies and important family contact information. A study by the Institute of Medicine found that 44,000 to 99,000 deaths occur in the United States every year due to medical errors. Other studies have found this number to be as high as 195,000 deaths every year.
Many of the fatal medical errors that occur in this country every year are due to communication problems among different components of the health care system, poorly documented health information, and inadequate patient education. Your Health Power 101: Health ID Card empowers you to improve your safety when navigating the health care system; particularly in emergencies, by always keeping your personal health information accurate and available.
