We’re pleased to provide you with a new tool designed to help you manage your child’s healthcare needs. The CHOP Care Binder has been designed to make organizing the paperwork associated with your child’s care easier.
What is a Care Binder?
A Care Binder is an organizing tool for families who have children or teens with special healthcare needs. Use a Care Binder to keep track of important information about your child’s health and care.
How can a Care Binder help me?
In caring for your child with special health needs, you may get information and paperwork from many sources. A Care Binder helps you organize the most important information in a central place. A Care Binder makes it easier for you to find and share key information with others who are part of your child’s care team.
Use your Care Binder to:
- track changes in your child's medicines or treatments
- list telephone numbers for healthcare providers and community organizations
- prepare for appointments
- file information about your child's health history
- share new information with your child's primary doctor, school nurse, daycare staff, and others caring for your child
