My Health ID: Helping You Manage Your Healthcare
Have you ever been at your physicians office filling out your patient information and can't remember a medication you're taking or results from a recent lab test? If so, you may benefit from keeping your information in one place. My Health ID is a tool that allows you to take control of your health, as well as all members in your family. My Health ID is a FREE program made available to you to help keep your health information organized. My Health ID includes important healthcare information such as:
- Contact Information
- Emergency Contact Information
- Organ Donor Information
- Medication Lists
- Immunization Records
- Medical History
- Family History
- Living Will/ Advanced Directives
- Health Insurance Information
- Significant Surgeries or Illnesses
- Healthcare Provider(s) Information
Among many benefits, My Health ID can help consumers manage the healthcare of family members, provide doctors with accurate, up-to-date information, avoid the duplication of tests and procedures, help prevent medical errors and help control the overall organization of your health.
My Health ID can be filled out and saved to your personal computer or portable memory device (flash drive) for easy updating and access. My Health ID is not saved by Sunrise Hospital or Sunrise Children's Hospital and is only made for your personal use. Please remember to update My Health ID after each medical appointment or hospitalization and to save My Health ID in a secure place to prevent lost or stolen information. Simply download, fill-in and save a copy of the pre-made Electronic Personal Health Record. You may choose to add notes at the end of My Health ID or not include information you don't deem necessary. Remember to create a My Health ID for each member in your family.
