MotherKnows

Imagine you’re on vacation and your child gets sick or hurt and you need to take him to a doctor who doesn’t immediately have access to his medical records. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pull up your child’s medical history right from any Web browser or on your iPhone whenever you need it? Or how about sharing your child’s immunization records with her school nurse without having to get a form completed from your doctor? MotherKnows lets you do these things and works by collecting your children’s medical records from any medical provider and converting the data into a slick mobile health record. All parents have to do is sign an electronic release. MotherKnows is $9.95 a month or $98 a year for one child with discounts for additional children. The company says the number of people using the site is doubling every six weeks.
