Lots of steps go into moving, one of the important ones is your medical records and files need to move with you. When’s the last time you thought about your medical records? Probably not until you needed them. Whether you are moving locally, long distance, or international, it should be at the top of you and your family members medical records should be at the top of your list when it comes to moving. This will save you time, stress and the panic when you or a family member needs treatment, only for you to realize the records are at your previous doctor’s office, perhaps thousands of miles away.
How soon should you move your medical records?
Medical, dental and optometry/ophthalmology records will need to move as soon as possible to your new location. You can either make copies to have with you and take them to your new doctor or have your previous provider send them to your new doctors. That is if you have a new doctor to send them too.
Make sure to keep track of your records if you decide to bring a copy by having them packed, and labeled correctly during your move. Isaac’s Moving and Storage have the packing supplies and staff to keep you records organized and easy to access when you reach your new location.
