The time to prepare for an emergency is not when you’re faced with one.
Keeping a personal health record (PHR) for yourself and your family is vital for unexpected emergencies and a PHR will make your life a lot easier and less stressful at routine doctor office visits.
I was faced with a life threatening emergency for my Mother. I couldn’t answer any medical questions regarding her health or medical history. I didn’t even know if she wore dentures! The feeling of helplessness was overwhelming.
The truth is none of us spend our days wondering if an emergency is going to happen to someone we love. Emergencies don’t call ahead and they don’t make a reservation. I was faced with a problem and I wanted to create a solution that was easy to use, easy to understand, easy to afford and easy to manage. MIMI – My Instant Medical Information was the answer.
Life is all about training. If your house is on fire, you know where the fire extinguisher is. If the tornado sirens go off, you know to take cover. But if a family member needs medical attention, will you be able to answer basic medical questions a healthcare professional will ask that could help save their life?:
- What are the names and dosages of their medications?
- Why are they taking these medications?
- What are the dates of past surgeries or medical procedures?
- What are their allergies? Current medical conditions? Blood type?
Being faced with an emergency for yourself or a loved one is extremely stressful. Having to fill out medical forms or answer medical questions accurately is next to impossible. MIMI will build your entire family’s medical history allowing you to simply track routine doctor appointments, vaccinations, important medical procedures, allergies, prescriptions, dosages, and much more.
Regular doctor visits are essential to maintaining good health and in some cases provide an early detection of a severe illness. When you provide your doctor with MIMI, you will have the confidence that your health history information is complete and current, which will assist your doctor with providing you with the correct care – FAST! MIMI may also minimize the written information needed on office/hospital medical forms. This will save you valuable time and reduce your frustration and stress with trying to remember every detail of your health history. Simply hand them a copy of your printed MIMI.
MIMI is a desktop application, (a computer software program) which automatically runs on Windows®. MIMI has unlimited information input and edit capabilities. Your MIMI grows as your family’s personal medical history grows. Having a lifesaving tool for yourself and your family in one easy to use system, will provide you with peace of mind.
I never want to be faced with that feeling of helplessness again. I would rather have MIMI and not need it than to need MIMI and not have it. MIMI is my family’s health advocate.
