We know this doesn’t have a lot to do with child care, but we do like to let our friends in Leda and in the Perth area know about resources that can help them with their children. One of the best resources right now is called YourChildsHealthRecord.com.
Overseas, more and more people and medical facilities are storing records online. At YourChildsHealthRecord.com, you can have access to all of your child’s health record from different doctors in one place.
Having a resource like this enables parents to manage and control their children’s health records independently. A GP in Sydney, Dr Joann Goodier, who also has pharmaceutical industry and business background, believes that having all of your child’s records in one place will produce what she calls “better outcomes” for your child.
A mother of two girls who are 15 and 12 lamented the fact that this service wasn’t available when her children were young. One child was partially through Hepatitis B treatments and they had to move. Because she couldn’t obtain records, the new doctors had to start the treatments over.
Having a central personal health record is the most efficient way to document vaccinations for your child. Monitoring the immunisation status of both individuals and populations online gives the medical community more chance of eradicating disease, both nationally and internationally.
Another important use for this system is for children who have challenges such as diabetes or asthma. When the information is in one place, it can be accessed quickly from anywhere in the world. In a time when parents and families often have hectic schedules that often require travel, it is comforting for parents to be able to access the information any time they need it.
