For seven long years, Kristy Dickenson suffered from health issues that stumped doctors. It took endless tests and specialists to finally determine the cause. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a chronic disease that affects the connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels and many other organs and tissues.
While finally having a diagnosis was a relief, Kristy now found herself with a different challenge. She was seeing several specialists across different health districts – none of which were connected. Now, the burden of keeping track of all her health records fell entirely on her.
Kristy set up her binders diligently and even tried several health apps to manage her health record electronically. She thought she had it all under control until she arrived at a specialist appointment she’d waited six months for. To Kristy’s dismay, the specialist didn’t have the latest report, leaving Kristy no choice but to reschedule. There simply had to be a better way to manage electronic health records.
