My life changed in 2016 following a diagnosis of advanced kidney cancer. Going from doctor to doctor, the importance of accessible and shareable medical records became very clear to me. I still recall one day when I had to drive to THREE different hospitals to obtain copies of reports and images, to ensure they got to a new specialist in time for a scheduled appointment. I’m happy to report there is a better way!
Ciitizen is a new company that helps patients collect, organize, and share their medical records – free of charge. By aggregating your records all in one place, you have control of your data and can easily transfer records when seeking a second opinion or enrolling in a clinical trial.
I found the service very easy to use. When I enrolled, I let Ciitizen know where I had received treatment and they took it from there. After my records were loaded, I had access to all my medical information in one place. I was also provided with an online cancer health summary that includes my type of cancer, stage, grade and treatments.
I’m proud to share that Cittizen will donate $10.00 to KCCure for each new member that joins using the link below. Access to your health data is important and your right under HIPPA. If you’re interested in learning more or enrolling with Ciitizen to get control of your medical data, click here.
