The first quote was from tweets on a presentation by Eunita Winkey, a patient activist: “Teach, advocate, save lives.” The second was one that came to mind from Winston Churchill after the Battle of Britain in World War II. “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. - See more at: http://medicalhealthplan.org/will-partnership-meeting-propel-mass-movement/#sthash.jgGNiVJN.dpuf

Eunita Winkey’s Ignite presentation on Medical Records (MR AWARENESS), Electronic Medical Records (EMR AWARENESS), and Electronic Health Records (EHR AWARENESS) was a “weekend gathering of patient activists and supporters at a “Partnership with Patients” conference this past weekend offered some important clues about opportunities and obstacles.  The meeting was conceived and created in a matter of weeks by artist and activist Regina Holiday, with a little help from a lot of friends and an offer of a casino-turned-corporate-meeting-center by Cerner Corp. in Kansas City, Missouri. The first quote was from tweets on a presentation by Eunita Winkey, a patient activist: “Teach, advocate, save lives.” The second was one that came to mind from Winston Churchill after the Battle of Britain in World War II. “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

According to Wikipedia "The terms medical record, health record, and medical chart are used somewhat interchangeably to describe the systematic documentation of a single patient's medical history and care across time within one particular health care provider's jurisdiction.  An electronic health record is a representation of all a patients’ data that would originally be found in the paper based record. It contains all information ranging from pathology, radiology and clinical information that has been combined and structured in a digital form. An electronic health record (EHR) is an evolving concept defined as a systematic collection of electronic health information about individual patients or populations."

Heros & Hostages in NYC!
More than 700 patients were evacuated following the impact of Sandy. True heros and first responders gently moved fragile patients to new locations, but the information left behind was important too - medical records. Medical records that are accurate save lives, and that is another part of common ground that we must all embrace, prepare, and activate at a moment's notice. After more than a decade of personal experience and public advocacy, I raise my voice again to those who will hear the three things that we must never forget!
  1. Key Ring of Life - Carrying your medical records in a convenience way is just plain smart. Whether a simple USB flash drive or a medical drive, everyone needs this information as close as our key rings.
  2. Annual Check Up -Request and Examine Your Medical Records From Your Physician Yearly!
  3. Talk with Your Family - Help them stand up and have conversations with those who are caring for you and your family so that they know what to do if there is a problem with your health.
