It is Mahatma Gandhi who said, “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” CareStarter provides the caregivers with access to information empowering them to make the best health and patient decisions nurturing our “real wealth” as Gandhi explained.
With information, there is real power. However, organizing that information is especially important when faced with a world wide web full of options. It can be overwhelming, if not paralyzing.
One of my favorite features in the CareStarter app is our provider feature. It allows you to organize your provider list by patient, connecting you to all the providers' important information including address, phone number, and websites.
Update: You may notice that details about Connections are disappearing! That's because the Connections app will be going away as we focus more on bringing faster and better updates to the CareStarter app. Don't worry, your Connections login will work on CareStarter! Swap Over to CareStarter now!
Step 1: Search and Locate a Resource
In this tutorial, I’m assuming you understand how to search within the CareStarter platform. If you do not, then please click here. On the home screen, select “Lists.” On the next screen, you will click the “My Providers” button where you will then either access your already established Provider Lists or you can Add a New Provider.
Each patient or profile listed on your account has a different list of providers. You can access your list and select them individually to be connected to their phone number, website address, or physical office location.
*Note: A bookmark is different than a provider list. Click here to read more about bookmarks. Adding a resource as a provider means that you or one of the patients listed under your profile are actively visiting them as part of a diagnosis.
