“I am informed, I am proactive, and I am taking charge of my health by using this medical blue book,” says Fern Zimbalist, author of The Medical Blue Book. She is an author, educator, and an expert in the tourism industry, but above all else, she is a patient advocate who currently devotes her life to helping people take responsibility for their own health. Zimbalist is helping individuals form their own customized medical blue books, comprised of lab reports, imaging reports, disks, timelines, patient portal websites, referrals, and research.
In the absence of a single medical database which compiles the entirety of an individual’s medical history, Zimbalist understands the importance of being prepared and organized in order to get the most out of a doctor’s appointment. And her book doesn’t just serve the patient and their health–it saves doctors a tremendous amount of time that would otherwise be spent tracking down and obtaining patient records.
