Hi All who find themselves here,

As patients and caregivers, we all know how overwhelming it can be to get access to and keep track of our medical records and imaging files, especially when seeing different doctors at multiple medical facilities, or making treatment decisions that just can't wait. Patient portals can help, but they are often confusing, disconnected, and incomplete. All of this can make it difficult to coordinate care, get second opinions, share records with doctors, avoid unnecessary repeat testing, and find clinical trials.

At, we believe there has to be a better way. So, we've partnered with Ciitizen, a new service that can help you collect and organize your entire health history in a secure online profile — at no cost. Together, we want to make it easier for you to get the best care possible with digital access to all of your medical records whenever you need them.

To learn how Ciitizen can help you take control of your health information, keep it organized, and make it easy and secure for you to access it, visit

You can also share your experiences in this Topic on managing medical records. Thank you Medicating
