How can I organize my child’s health information?

Create a care organizer to store your child’s information. It can help you:

  • Keep track of medicines or treatments
  • Organize contact information for health care providers and community organizations
  • Prepare for appointments
  • File information about your child’s health history

How do I get started?

  • Gather existing information such as discharge reports, clinic visit summaries, immunization records, school plan, test results and care plans.
  • Build an organizer using a 3-ring binder, expandable folder, box or other device.
  • Create your own sections using tabbed or pocket dividers.
  • Clear page protectors make it easy to remove pages and business cards.
  • Bring the organizer to appointments and meetings to share information and keep track of new information.
