To gain the most insight, we seek information to provide a complete picture.

Gaps in information can lead to inaccuracies as we fumble to fill the missing information. Medical data is exactly the same.

Complete data is key if we want a comprehensive view of someone’s well-being and treatment.

If a patient’s goal is to lose weight, details such as Body Mass Index, bone mass, body fat percentage and eating habits are critical to making informed decisions and improving the chance of a good outcome.

There are six types of medical data patients should have and important benefits to owning this information. Consolidated medical data is important in determining the quality of healthcare patients and their families receive.

The PPO system challenge patients face

The Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) system is a medical care arrangement in which medical professionals and healthcare facilities provide services to subscribed clients. It is an open network that gives patients the ability to make informed choices regarding the healthcare professionals and facilities they prefer.

The challenge arises if a patient needs to visit alternative health providers, such as when seeking a second opinion. Patients are left in a difficult position - at the very time they need their health records, they are unable to access them easily. This challenge is compounded when patients need to go “out of network” or are caretakers for family members and need the records of those they support.

3 Benefits of consolidating medical Data

1. Patients can save valuable time

Medical data consolidation helps save time so patients can stay focused on providing care for their families.

Between phone calls and trips to doctors’ offices to complete forms, dealing with the PPO System can be time-consuming. Since most healthcare providers work autonomously, one care team may not have a clear understanding of what the other team has been doing. This leaves the patient as the “go-between,” in a role they’re not prepared for - educating medical professionals on their health and healthcare.

Consolidated medical data saves patients time because it is collected in a structured format which can then be shared with the right medical personnel at the right time.

2. Patients gain peace of mind

Being a family caregiver can be stressful when necessary medical information is not on hand.

It can be anxiety-provoking when caregivers feel out of the loop regarding the health status of loved ones. Having medical records consolidated in one place allows caregivers the ability to track up-to-date information and determine the effectiveness of the healthcare their loved one is receiving.

3. Patients become more empowered

Consolidated medical data is crucial in obtaining a panoramic view of someone’s health condition. Having complete information helps improve the accuracy of care and health outcomes. In essence, it allows patients to take charge of their medical journey.

With complete health data available, patients can communicate better with healthcare providers and feel more in control.
