Keeping track of your health information and other important documents will make it easier for doctor's appointments, applying for college or jobs, and replacing lost or stolen I.D. cards.

Learn about health care transition to become more comfortable with the process.

Planning for health care transition can begin as young as 13 or 14 years old. This gives youth plenty of time to learn how to be more independent.

Making the transition to an adult provider should happen between 18 and 22 years old but will depend on your pediatric provider's policy.

 

There are many e-tools or personal health record (PHR) apps available to help you keep track of your health information. Visit HealthIT.gov to learn more. For more tools and resources about transition, visit Got Transition.
