Why Do We Need To Store Our Medical Records ?

Health is nothing to be played with. As we all know, our health is the most important asset we own and we all know that it is hard to be successful in life without good health. So, we need to stay healthy. However, it is getting harder to stay healthy when healthcare cost is skyrocketing and top of that lack of centralize patients’ medical records is taking toll on us. It is not only increasing our healthcare costs, but it is also causing misdiagnosis and potential death or long-term disability due to miscommunication between doctors, patients and other service providers.

Suppose you have a family doctor who you have been seeing in any case of medical urgency since you were 18 and he knows what kind of medicines suit you (just for the sake of assumptions). What would you do if you have to move to another city or perhaps, country? Of course, you will have to find a new doctor! Now, if you provide your new doctor with your old medical records in case you need some medical attention then you are in safe hands. But if not, chances are that you can be a victim of misdiagnosis.

That’s why it is one wise thing to do to store your medical records on the cloud so that you can access anytime from anywhere.

You’ll need them if you change doctors, move, get sick when you’re away from home, or end up in an emergency room. If any of these things happen and you have your records, you may get treatment quickly, and it will be safer.

It is really important to understand that lack of medical records may cause misdiagnosis which may end up in potential death or long-term disability.

Dr. David Troxel, medical director of The Doctors Company, a malpractice insurer based in Napa, Calif., said, “The study provides valuable information to caregivers about medical errors. I believe that the disclosure of this information will enhance patient’s safety.” Troxel also said that “Patients can also play an important role in reducing the incidence of diagnostic errors by providing their doctor with an accurate medical history, adhering to the prescribed follow-up plan, keeping return visit appointments to discuss abnormal test results and asking questions to clarify instructions they don’t clearly understand.”

But as much as it is important to store medical records, it is to be noted that providing your doctor with your records at the right time is equally important. Emergency has no form. And situations can take any form. You may lose your records or fail to provide them at the moment of need.

To prevent or avoid such situations, Software Goldsmith Inc. has come up with an innovative idea by creating HealthCareSolutions4U. Our intention is to provide you right information, tools and technology so that you can take control of your own medical records, and make right decisions.

Women’s Day Special: Here are some rights that every Indian woman should know

Every year on 8th of March, we celebrate International Women’s Day to honor them, yet we live in a world where crimes against women are most common. This is one bitter truth we cannot deny.

Sexual harassment, molestation, rapes are the crimes that make women fear to step outside of their homes. But crimes against women do not occur only on the streets but indoors too. When they are not going out and living their dreams, they face domestic violence.

The disturbing fact is that most of the women do not raise their voice against these horrible acts. And that’s because most of them do not know their rights.

On this Women’s day, let us be aware of some that every Indian woman should know:

  1. Right to No Arrest

According to a Supreme Court ruling, a woman cannot be arrested after sunset and before sunrise.

  1. Right to Free Legal Aid

When a woman goes to the police station without being accompanied by a lawyer she is either quoted wrong, ignored or humiliated for her statements. She should be aware of the fact that she has a right to get the legal aid and that she should demand for it.

  1. Right to Zero FIR (First Information Report)

This is a Supreme Court ruling that not many women are aware of but a rape victim can register her police complaint from any police station under the Zero FIR ruling by Supreme Court.

  1. Right to not being called to the police station

Women cannot be called to the police station for interrogation under Section 160 of the Criminal Procedure Code. This law provides Indian women the right of not being physically present at the police station for interrogation.

A victim has a right to record her statement in private. She has a freedom to record her statement with a lady constable or a police officer in personal. Under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code, the cops will have to give the privacy to the victim without stressing her in front of masses.

  1. Right towards crime and not a medical condition

A case of rape can’t be dismissed even if the doctor says rape had not taken place. A victim of rape needs to be medically examined as per Section 164 A of the Criminal Procedure Code, and only the report can act as proof.

  1. Right to lodge FIR at any time

Police cannot say no to a women at any time to register her complaint, no matter if it’s after a few days when the incident took place.
