One of the essential requirements for caring for patients with medical comorbidities is to maintain accurate and up-to-date patient records. These records provide crucial information about a patient's medical history, previous treatments, and response to medications. By reviewing patient records, we can evaluate the effectiveness and necessity of the prescribed medications and treatments, assess any potential risks or contraindications, and make informed decisions regarding the ongoing treatment plans. This process allows us to safeguard the health and well-being of our patients, ensuring that treatment is managed appropriately and minimizing the potential for adverse effects.
We understand that providing records may seem burdensome or time-consuming for patients. However, it is an essential part of responsible medical practices and enables us to deliver the highest standard of care.
Benefits of Providing Records
Past records are always helpful. Showing your providers exactly what your past treatments have been, why they may or may not have been effective, and what alternatives have been considered can be integral to continuity in your care. Instead of reinventing the wheel, Evolve can build on your past and move onward to better solutions which will save you time and frustration.
When Records Are Needed
In certain situations, our experts strongly recommend that you provide past records before your first appointment. You may proceed with your first appointment but your treatment recommendations may be limited or deferred depending on your individual case.
