AARP and Microsoft Corp. today announce the launch of AARP Health Record, a security-enhanced online service designed to help people over 50 manage and improve their health. This new tool enables users to enter, store and edit their personal health information in a central location and to share it selectively with caregivers, family members, doctors and other healthcare providers.
AARP Health Record, which is free to AARP members, makes it easy to create and maintain security-enhanced, up-to-date electronic records that can be accessed from an Internet connection. By storing all of their health information in one location, members can partner more effectively with their doctors and other healthcare providers, be better prepared for emergencies and reduce wasteful and redundant paperwork.
“AARP Health Record is designed to help our members better manage their health so they can focus on the things they care about most – enjoying the happiness and peace of mind that comes from living life to the fullest,” said AARP Vice President Nicole Duritz.
AARP Health Record will focus on giving AARP members a convenient way to track and manage basic health information, such as blood type, drug allergies, medications, and personal and family health history as well as emergency and provider contact information. Users can also print and carry an easy-to-read wallet card with their vital health statistics. The tool is available in both English and Spanish.
“This is the future of health care,” said Duritz. “Our members need information that is current and convenient, so they can ask smart questions and communicate effectively with the healthcare system, whether they are in their doctor’s office or halfway around the world on vacation.”
AARP Health Record is available at www.aarp.org/healthrecord and www.aarp.
