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.

Sync Kills the idea
The sync is what kills this platform. There are several items that are great and there are some areas that need improvement, however, it is understandable that those standard improvements that would come with dot releases have not been forthcoming because the developer is dealing with sync issues.
My experience has been one of ups and downs. I have the iPad, iPhone, and Mac versions of the software and am using Dropbox sync. However, just as others have mentioned on the reviews, the sync created a duplicant person for each person of record I had. Then when I tried to delete one, it erased both. Now, I have no data, and because they fixed the Dropbox sync so that it now happens almost simultaneous, all of my data was deleted from all my devices. I was able to get the data back, but I still have duplicates in my records. It is very frustrating as these sync issues have plagued the product from the beginning. It has the potential to be great, but for now, the data is safer in just a storage account like Evernote, than itemized like I want to in My Medical. If they fixed the sync I would give it 4 stars with the chance to improve.
Back and forth
There are days this app works great, and the along comes an update and it’s a nightmare again. I’ve had to give up on the drop box sync because it was creating too much of a mess with my records. I’ve reverted to the device sync (which at one point had stopped working for me). It’s what I find to be the cleanest way to keep my information organized the way it should. Of course it’s a pain because I am using this on my iphone, iPad, Mac Mini, and MBP.
I’m still hopeful hospitalization information scheduling begins to appear on the calendar correctly. It’s still odd that this was an oversight.
It would also be helpful to have a bit more control over the data tables supporting the test results. The only way I was able to clear this out was having another device overwrite the application since it had not been updated with any entries. This section of the program is way too clunky.
The app does have potential, but it takes a great deal of work as an end user to keep it moving.
Was a great app
I’ve been using this app for about 2 years now and have loved it until recently. I went to use the drop box sync function and lost ALL of the information on all of my devices (iMac, MacBook, iPad, and iPhones). I had over 200 records and they are all gone. Once the sync issue is fixed I would rate it at the 5 stars but for now only 3 because the only reliable way to get information between devices is the “send to another” feature which is time consuming.
