As of May 21, 2014 the RULES HAVE CHANGED! 

It is "not your Daddy's exam" anymore, but a serious undertaking, with numerous mandated requirements and strict regulations.

HFM CAN HELP!

The American Bar Association Launches an App for Advanced Care Directives
HFM highly recommends that ALL patients make clear their desires for situations in which they may not be able to speak for themselves. This is a very sensible way to do so.

The app launched in April by the American Bar Association is called My Health Care Wishes and addresses a common problem with advanced directives like living wills.

People create living wills and put them somewhere safe, but may not be accessible to family or readily available when necessary. With the app, anybody can store their advanced directives as a secure PDF in their own smartphone, or they can have their spouse, child or healthcare proxy store their information or their phone instead.

For more information or to download the apps click on your your smart phone type: Android device or iOS .

 

YOU MAY ONLY THINK YOU HAVE "COVERAGE"

With remarkable naivete, the American people believed a lie.  It is NOT possible to deliver MORE and BETTER health care to MORE people at LESS cost -- when has that ever been possible in any endeavor? Worse, this is being attempted with no legal reform and heaps of new burdensome regulations, reducing the efficiency of the system 15% - 20%. 

The hidden solution:
shift the cost to the patient.

Spring into Fitness!

We genuinely care about each patient at Heritage Family Medicine; our goal is your whole health. We are here to help you reach all your fitness goals, whenever you are ready to make any health changes in your life.  While a spring is an excellent time to start a new fitness plan for many people, please keep in mind if you have any health conditions such as diabetes, HBP, or any other condition your physician is monitoring on a regular basis, it is best if you consult them before starting on a new fitness plan. We are sharing below a couple apps to help you with your daily fitness routine.

The first app is GoMeals by sanofi-aventi U.S. LLC, 

   GoMeals has a Food Tracker that will allow you to count the calories of your favorite foods from your local grocery store to popular restaurants. With the Activity Tracker you can sync with your fitbit to calculate your calories burned. The Glucose Tracker is a place to record and track your numbers thru out the day. You can find a restaurant with the database of 20,000 restaurants. Back up all your glucose records and fitness data on the Cloud Sync to share with your physician, or check when and wherever you need it next. This app is available for both Android and Apple. Free with no in-app purchases.

The second app we find helpful is Calorie Counter - MyFitnessPal  by my MyFitnessPal, Inc.

With MyFitnessPal you can import your own recipes, create a custom diet or exercise program and receive progress reports on you goals.
