Minute Clinic Visits Pricing and What you Should Bring with You – Medical Information and History

Posted Jul 06 2009 9:49pm

The clinics are convenient and helpful with selected issues, good place for a flu shot if you don’t want to wait.  What is interesting here is that the emphasis is on bringing some medical information with you to the visit.  This may catch on soon with the ER Rooms too, you think?  It only stands to make sense.  Some of the clinics now also take insurance.  BD

What’s the easiest way to do this, a personal health record, unless you want to run around with a lot of paper.  Minute Clinics use an electronic health record and your visit can easily be imported into your PHR as well as your medications at the pharmacy.  Once more a look at HealthVault or Google Health could save a lot of time and offer some credible records and when you return to your regular family practice doctor, you can also share the information them as well.  BD
