Your medical records can be found online once you have a personal health record established. You can start a personal health record yourself or have information added by a doctor or health facility that maintains compatible records. You can start a personal health record using various online options such as Google Health Records and RevolutionHealth Health Record. Setting up a health record using either of these services is free.
