             Keeping Tidy


We too have high levels of disorganization in our healthcare lives. We hoard duplicate or out-of-date records - maybe because we aren't sure what may be needed sometime in the future.


It helps to tackle one category at a time - to enter your information in a consistent and meaningful way - not necessarily sparse but spare enough so you can access what is important. Some data sets can be tackled in bite-size pieces, some can be stored later, and some can be tossed. The important thing is that you start.

Tidy app is not about keeping perfect records or even about counting your steps or calories - but its aim is to help you take your health-care journey with a sense of confidence and oontrol.

No one teaches us how to get the best medical care. Sometimes you think something is wrong but you can't wrap your head around it and you do do nothing as the issue continues to grow. But sooner or later you know you got to deal with it. Tidy app can help motivate you.
