On top of feeling physically, emotionally, and financially drained because of chronic health problems, you also have to fight stress. Stress over things that most people don't have to think about. Stress about your little every day things like how to get yourself to your next doctor's appointment, whether you took your medications correctly this morning, or whether or not the pharmacy will have your prescription ready on time (and, even if it is ready on time, are you getting the best price for your drugs?).
Top that off with the kind of stress that other people get to complain about- the "getting the kids to school on time every morning" spiel, or the "in-laws will be in town this weekend" scenario, and you've got yourself a fight that looks like it can't be won.
Unfortunately for you, stress takes an even larger toll on your mind and body than you may know. Stress can raise your blood pressure, slow your digestion, and depress your immune system. Over the long term it can even increase your risk of hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, not to mention the setbacks it may bring to your current health issues.
As if you weren't battling enough already.
That is where we would like to help. Enter Jack Imaging, your health care sidekick. Jack Imaging offers you, the patient, and you, the person, a sense of control over your health care.
Through your free, cloud-based patient profile, we help you store your radiologic record somewhere safe and accessible. Your images can be viewed from any doctor's office, or even from your computer so that you can cut down your number of appointments and consults, or even get a second opinion on your latest scan without leaving home. If a little peace of mind can help lower your stress load, we want to be the ones to help you achieve it. Check out our tutorial here, or sign up here if you are ready to bring us on as your health care sidekick.
If we could be your side kick, this is what we would want to look like.
