My Medical is a comprehensive record-keeping app for your personal medical information. It's the perfect replacement for unreliable paper records or various electronic systems that hold bits and pieces of your medical history. With My Medical, any and all information that is important to you is kept together in one place.
* It's for the whole family *
My Medical isn't just one medical record. You can keep as many records as you want. Use it for a spouse or aging parents. Use it to keep immunization records for your children. Use it to look after a special needs child. Doctors, nurses and clinicians: use My Medical to maintain notes about your patients.
* 21st century record-keeping *
At heart, My Medical is a thorough database that's yours to control and change. But it's nice to have some help, which is why the app offers autocompletion and autosuggestion for a wealth of medical jargon, including prescription drug names; vaccinations; common afflictions; life support options; laboratory units; and much more. That means more time keeping track of what's important, and less time trying to remember (or spell) the name of that medication.
* A medical record and more *
Areas for emergency contacts, health insurance, doctors' contact information, and other data that are not strictly part of a traditional personal health record (PHR) are all available. And if you already have medical contacts in your address book, then perfect, because My Medical can import it in one click. There's no need to retype it all.
* And it works with your calendar *
My Medical will automatically put doctor's appointments, upcoming lab tests, and prescription refill reminders on your Mac's calendar. You can even set reminder alarms directly from the app, without ever going into your calendar.
* A digital file cabinet *
What about photographs, labwork, x-rays and other important documents that can't be typed directly in? My Medical devotes an entire area to extra files that can be attached to your record. Not only that, you can tie files to particular items anywhere within your information. So add a picture of the pill next to a medication. Keep a copy of your insurance card alongside a provider's contact information.
* From blood tests to X-rays *
My Medical provides a range of common test result templates for you to track test results. To name just a few: blood pressure; cholesterol; metabolic panels; blood sugar; CAT scan; height and weight. If that isn't enough, construct and customize your own test results to keep track of exactly what you need.
* Visualize it *
Chart test results with sophistication and discover trends over time. With the charting feature you can view multiple graphs simultaneously and even see moving averages to uncover long term changes.
* It's secure *
Unlike most other health record applications, data is stored right on your Mac, not on remote servers. So you don't need to worry about who can see your data at the other end of the line. In fact, My Medical does not connect to the Internet at all and doesn't send out any private or diagnostic information, making it as secure as possible. As a further safety measure, you may require a password in order to view all or certain parts of your information.
* Standards compatible *
My Medical supports the industry standard Continuity of Care Record (CCR) format of personal medical record transmission between systems. The long and the short: if you already have records in other system like Microsoft HealthVault, then it's a breeze to automatically move much of that data to My Medical instead of having to manually retype it.
* Get the word out *
Sharing your information has never been easier. Generate a report of all or part of your record and email it straightaway. Or export it as a Microsoft Excel-readable spreadsheet.

Ratings and Reviews
Works like a champ
I recently put this app thru its paces and populated every category with data from the past 20 years. It does everything I need it to do. It allowed me to upload the actual charts and I can send the charts to a new doc or specialist as needed. I really like the ability to tailor the lab test section to mimic the actual lab reports I receive from the doctor’s office. I’ve been able to sync between my Mac laptop and iPhone via dropbox very easily. By having the ability to change the view on the labs means I can easily track my results over time and see whether I’m on a good or bad trajectory. Filling out doctor’s office forms is now a breeze as I’ve got all the data needed. I’m a big fan of this app!
Where is the support?
I’ve been using My Medical on my iMac for a few years because it’s perhaps the only real PHR available for Mac / iOS. As others have noted, the workflow and data entry could use some work, but the basics are there. There is a lot of potential.
My major concern now is that I’ve recently added the iOS app and the Dropbox syncing is not working across devices. The app keeps trying to setup a new chart file in my Dropbox, rather than take up the existing data already from my Mac. I have emailed for support 3 times and gotten no response. I’m guessing they’ve stopped developing this, but to not even answer an email is pretty disappointing after being a regular user.
If this product is no longer being developed, it needs to be removed from the App store.
Poor support and reliability
I have used My Medical for over for the past few years and have not had any problems until recently. My medical is running on my MacBook Pro and my iPhone using their Dropbox sync. A few weeks ago I checked the application and all my data was lost for the past year on both devices. I sent 2 emails to support requesting assistance and received no replies from the developer. While losing the data was disconcerting the lack of any support from the company is unacceptable. Over the years I have contacted other firms for support with their apps and have always received a prompt reply. This is the first company that has not bothered to answer repeat emails for assistance. If you are looking for an app to store your medical data reliably as well as a firm that will assist you when necessary then I urge you to stay away from My Medical.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
