Health information software?
#1
Hey, y'all know of any software that helps to keep track of health information? Not history, but like blood pressure readings, glucose readings, weight, etc?

Wanted to know if one existed before I set up a spreadsheet.

I got SleepyHead for AHI. Just got Glucofacts for glucose readings. Been using Glucose Buddy on my phone for a while now. Wondering if there was something to input all this and keep organized.

There is a free template for Microsoft Excel 2007 or later to track Blood Pressure readings.

The problem with Healthvault is it is dependent on other programs or software. If your doctor or device isn't one of them, there's no way for you to enter in your own data. I'm still looking into it to see if that is possible. It appears to be more of a cloud thing for multiple entities. And having Microsoft in charge of it makes me twitch. Laugh-a-lot

CB I have something like that already started. I like the neater layout though.

Okay, poked some more on the Healthvault and found where I can insert information. Cooler than I thought.

I use it because my lab work is done by labcorp and I can view the results without having to wait for a paper copy to be mailed. Also, the labcorp app keeps a record of all my labwork. Very convenient.

Oh! We have them here. I'll have to look them up to see if their app applies here.

Mission Hospital, the main hospital in WNC now, is growing larger and larger, swallowing up more and more doctor's practices, especially specialists. This is good in one way because they all have the same info available to them. My cardio can access my sleep study (should he ever get the urge AND I have given permission). I'm surprised they haven't come out with a patient equivalent. I didn't know stuff like that existed until I was visiting my brother. I asked him about his latest A1c and he went to his computer and looked it up. How cool is that? His doc is part of the Cooper Hospital system (NJ/PA).

I agree that the info should be readily available. When my doctor was in Las Vegas the group provided on line access to lab work and med history it was good but not perfect, they owned the data not me. I could look at it on line and transcribe it but not modify or share it out of network.
Kaiser in California also provides on line access to data, one of the few good things about Kaiser.
The key to the Obamacare law mandate for electronic record keeping is who owns and controls the data. If its my body and my health, I should own and control the data. I should be the one who grants or revokes access, certainly NOT the government or any one doctor. There also needs to be legal and functional restrictions on what others can do with my data.
