For years, my Dad kept a piece of paper the size of a credit card in his wallet with the names and numbers of his doctors and specialists. As he got older, the paper got longer, and over time, he added the names of his prescriptions on the back. Eventually, he laminated it.

In theory, my dad’s wallet card worked as he intended, and it always got a chuckle from doctors and staff. In reality, however, it was often misplaced and frequently out of date.

Thankfully, times have changed, and today, there’s a better way for Independence members (my Dad was one) to manage and maintain their health information — the IBX Personal Health Record.

The IBX Personal Health Record is an online health record that is automatically updated with information from your claims data. It gives you a clear view of all your health information in one place, including:

  • Health assessments
  • Immunizations
  • Physician visiab results
  • Surgeries
  • Allergies
  • Medications
  • Chronic conditions

  • Store and view health records for any insured, dependent members under the age of 18.

In some ways my Dad was ahead of his time with his laminated paper health record, but as a civil engineer and early computer programmer, I know he would have jumped at the chance to use the online version.

I am a copywriter at IBX as well as a spouse, parent, dog owner, and kind of meh cook. Just like a lot of people, I am always looking for ways to make my day-to-day life easier so I can spend more time with family, sneak in a little more exercise, and (hopefully) get more sleep.
