How to Organize Your Medical Information
The quick, yet comprehensive guide to organization and empowerment for busy professionals
The first step to becoming empowered on your healthcare journey is becoming organized! Gathering papers, figuring out the order, and putting it all together can feel overwhelming and frustrating.
Picture this: you go to a new doctor's appointment and the intake nurse starts asking questions:
- What medications do you take?
- What's your past medical history?
- What other physicians do you see and what are their phone numbers?
- Have you had any recent labwork?
Your head is spinning with all the questions and you begin to frantically check your phone for help with answering. Maybe you check google for physician phone numbers. Maybe you text your spouse or family member to check your medication bottles at home. You know you've had labs, but how would you know the results?
This happens ALL.THE.TIME. And guess who loses? You do. Because without the necessary information, your new physician can't create a safe and effective plan for you. And without having this information readily available, you lose confidence in the healthcare system and in your ability to take a proactive role.
In this course, you will receive my proven system, with supporting documents, to tackle this step with comfort and ease! Oh and you might like the bonus section too :)
After graduating in 2003 from the University of Florida with her Doctorate of Pharmacy degree, she completed an additional year of residency training, specializing in Ambulatory Care. She has extensive experience in high risk medication management, retail pharmacy staffing and management, and hospital-based pharmacy services.
As a clinical pharmacist, Claudia advocated for her patients for over a decade. After her father was diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoma, she found herself on the patient side of the equation. It was during that year of struggle that she realized how important and vital it is to have an advocate by your side. She also visualized first hand how many patients are trying to navigate the medical system alone, while also trying to process their diagnosis and heal. She has lived and breathed the medical system from both sides and has an intimate understanding of what works and what doesn't. These experiences led her to become the Founder and Chief Patient Advocate of Peace Advocacy Group, where she serves as a Wellness Coach and Advocate, guiding her clients to not only get the immediate answers they need for an existing medical problem, but also to begin focusing on wellness by incorporating mind, body, and spirit. She enjoys filling her own cup by traveling with her family, sharing stories of wellness on her Minding Wellness Podcast, and seeking opportunities to live more consciously and aware.
