Staying Healthy While Traveling
Sunday, April 25, 2010 | Sarah Dietze

Go Nomad advises planning ahead for your trip. Plan for the unexpected and routine medical concerns by creating a PHR.

Here are few more health tips to make your trip as stress-free as possible:
-Inform your tour company of any preexisting conditions or special dietary needs. These can also be kept in your PHR.
-You may need vaccinations as early as two months before your departure date. Check with the Centers for Disease Control for recommendations, and include documentation from your doctor in your PHR.
-Don’t forget a personal first aid kit.
-Consider wearing a medical bracelet, listing blood type, medical concerns, or emergency numbers.

About This Blog

Welcome to the Traveler’s PHR blog – a communication forum and social network to connect you with health information management professionals and other travelers for the exchange of ideas and information for managing your personal health information to prepare for the best healthcare while traveling. If you ever wondered what might happen if you get sick or even became unconscious while traveling outside of your home town and what you might do to prepare for such an event, then you’re in the right place. As this blog grows, we invite you to share your own advice and travel stories and learn from other travelers about their experiences.
