Medical Binder Printables

After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s a few years ago, my journey to health included visits to new specialists. Of course, each new specialist wanted to hear all about my medical history. They expected me to remember every prescription I’ve had an allergic reaction to, surgery dates, and every supplement AND dose I’m taking.

Goodness Gracious!

After digging through loads of medical files for the umpteenth time, I decided there had to be a better way.

Time is valuable to both you and your doctors. Make that time as efficient as possible by creating a Medical Binder with Medical Binder Printables containing all of your pertinent medical information.

Why, yes, I did try Selenium. I started taking it January 17, 2015 and stopped April 23, 2016 because it was doing nothing for me. I have the labs to prove it right here!

Wow! That’s empowerment right there!

Carry your Medical Binder to each appointment and you can be empowered too! All the cool kids are doing it!

Binder

I use a 1.5″ white view binder with D-Rings just like this:

Avery Heavy-Duty View Binder with 1.5-Inch One Touch EZD Ring, White (79195)

Dividers

The Avery Dividers with pockets are awesome for this Medical Binder! The pockets are an excellent place to put future lab work slips for the corresponding doctor or to place doctor’s notes until you get home to that hole punch. The possibilities are endless. Trust me. You’ll be thrilled with the pockets!

Avery Big Tab Two-Pocket Insertable Plastic Dividers, 8-Tabs, 1 Set (11907)

Card Stock

Card Stock is great to use for the Medical Binder view pockets, especially if you want to utilize the spine printable. You could certainly use it for the printables inside the Medical Binder as well.

GP Image Plus+ White Card Stock – 250 Sheet Pack (8-1/2 x 11)

Paper

You probably already knew that! Regular typing paper is great for printing off these awesome Medical Binder printables!

Hole Punch

Swingline Desktop Hole Punch, Precision Pro, 2 – 3 Holes, Adjustable Centers, 10 Sheets (74037)

Now that you have all those fun office supplies (don’t you just love office supplies?), it’s time to get those Medical Binder Printables rolling!

Supplement and Medication Chart

If you haven’t already, check out the Supplement and Medication Chart Printable.

Medical History

With room to list your allergies, diagnosis, and surgeries, you’ll be sure to have pertinent information at your fingertips the next time your doctor asks!

Doctor Appointments

Keep track of where you’ve been and where you’re going. List the date, doctor, notes, and when to return for a follow up.

Questions for the Doctor

The last time I was at the Naturopath, I had mentally prepared a list of questions to ask. Guess what? Once I was there I drew a blank. Sound familiar? We all do it!

Write those questions down as you think of them and you’ll have them when you need them most.

Binder Cover and Spine

Here’s the catch! If you like the printables so far, I’m betting you will like printables I create in the future!

Assembling the Medical Binder

You have everything you need, now it’s time to put together your Medical Binder! The way you assemble your Medical Binder will be the way it works best for you! It’s a personal thing! Even so, I’m hoping to help you out a little by giving you a few suggestions!

Tab Dividers

Depending on your personal circumstances, your tab dividers will likely be different than mine. Here are a few to consider:

  • Chiropractor
  • Dentist
  • Dermatology
  • Immunizations
  • Labs
  • Naturopath
  • Orthodontist
  • Specialists
  • Tests
  • GP (General Practitioner)
  • Doctor’s Name (I have two favorite doctors and prefer to use their names)

Printables

But where do the Medical Binder Printables fit into those tabs?

Suggestions:

SUPPLEMENT AND MEDICATION CHART PRINTABLE

In front of it all! This makes it easy to locate when refilling your pill box!

Medical History Printable

Right behind the Supplement and Medication Chart Printable in the front.

Doctor Appointments Printable

It would make sense to place this printable in the front as well OR you could print one off for each doctor and place it behind the appropriate tab.

Questions for the Doctor Printable

This printable works well behind the tab of each doctor you visit! This way you can write specific questions for each doctor. After all, you may not need to ask your dentist about the wart on your toe!

Once your Medical Binder is put together with those handy dandy Medical Binder Printables, you can sigh a deep sigh of relief!

    WOAH! That was amazing Jayleen ~ very comprehensive! 🙂

    But wait, so a dentist DOESN’T need to know about a wart on your toe? Now you tell me! 😛 Man, you’re a hoot Jayleen! 😀

    • Sunshine and Rainy Days May 1, 2016, 7:46 pm

      TeeHee! Kay, I’m thinking YOUR dentist would love to hear about a wart on your toe:) After all, you are an excellent storyteller!

  • Patti May 10, 2016, 8:35 am

    Thank you! My husband and I have been in need of this. Please keep them coming.

  • Rhonda May 13, 2016, 1:38 pm

    Thanks so much. I have needed something like this for awhile . Cann’t wait to get started.

  • Janeen May 19, 2016, 2:43 pm

    This is phenomenal! My husband suffered through a “mysterious illness” a year ago and ended up creating something similar, but this would have been waaaaaay handier. Awesome! P.S. – We’ll have to chat Hashi’s someday. Crazy how common it’s becoming.

    • Sunshine and Rainy Days May 19, 2016, 4:43 pm

      Janeen, do you have Hashimoto’s too? It is crazy how common it is.

      • Janeen May 22, 2016, 6:44 pm

        I do. Thankfully it’s never been a huge deal for me (I started taking meds when I was a teen, didn’t realize that non-meds were even a possibility). My twin brother was only diagnosed this last year and it’s been tough going for him trying to get it under control. It sounds like you’ve had a similar experience. I think he’s created something similar to your binder too, and it’s helping him figure things out. I hope you get to feeling awesome soon!

    I have a disabled daughter. we are always at a doctor visit or hospital visit or testing. I would love to see a medical binder with blood pressure tracker, O2 levels tracker, Doctor visit, hospital visit. Med List, Medical bill tracker, scheduled doctor appointments, insurance records, medical address list and calendar. Being able to carry a binder with all necessary items needed would be such a blessing. Also adding the cover and spine.

    I have found that getting copies of the actual dr notes and including them in the respective section is a big help. I also get a copy of any test results, such as bloodwork, CT scans, MRI’s. This way doctors can make copies of what they need and get it quicker.

  • Katie Jul 25, 2016, 6:03 am

    Thanks for this!
    I have 5 dogs and 7 cats. As the dogs get older, more and more little medical issues seem to pop up, so this will be fantastic for my own records and for the doctors if we should ever have to see a new vet/specialist.

    • Sunshine and Rainy Days Jul 25, 2016, 7:45 am

      Hey! What a great idea! It’s sounds like you have a super fun home full of lots of love and what an awesome way to keep all of your medical records straight!
