Recently my family welcomed a special needs baby into our lives. When we took custody we weren’t given any health records aside from her immunization chart. We knew the basics of her medical conditions, and we were able to get our pediatrician’s opinion, but we will not be given her medical records until the adoption is final this fall.
This left us with a dilemma, do we just wait and hope the doctors get the records or do we get proactive? We decided to get proactive, and this is where CareSync came into play.

Our experience with CareSync Plus is remarkable. It took me about 15 minutes to enter the medical information for all 8 people in our family, including our newest addition. The app makes it very easy to add this information as it has thousands of doctors and medications already in their database. You just type in a name, click on your doctor or medication, and let CareSync do the rest.
It so happens that I am terrible at remembering to take medication, and I’m not great at remembering to medicate my kids either. CareSync allows you to set up reminders so you never skip your medicine again.
When it comes to record retrieval, CareSync has been more successful at obtaining records that our daughter’s pediatrician, and we CAN SEE THEM ALL. Thanks to CareSync we finally know how much our daughter weighed at birth, how far along into pregnancy her birthmother was when she went into labor, that she was a normal delivery, and exactly what the extent of her needs are. We no longer have to rely on what we were told by third parties, we have the information in our hands.
While I believe that CareSync is beneficial to anyhow, if you or anyone in your family has ongoing medical needs CareSync is a must-have.
