New Berlin, Wisconsin – 3G Publishing today is pleased to introduce Childhood Medical Journal 1.0 for iOS, its new journaling app, which lets parents and caregivers keep comprehensive health care records for all their children. The app provides a simple, all-in-one solution for saving basic information, tracking illnesses and medications, maintaining records in 16 categories, and sharing information with health care professionals and schools. Based on guidelines published by the CDC, USDA, AAP, and AAFP, the app includes a wealth of basic educational information about the health care needs of children.

Feature Highlights:
* Track illnesses and medications of all your children
* Keep an accurate record of your child’s growth, milestones, and any health issues
* Maintain a record of all doctor and dentist visits
* Includes informative charts regarding vaccinations, predicted growth, and diet

Many parents keep a file or folder of paper health records for each of their children. By the time the child reaches five years of age, these folders are frequently filled with dozens of notifications, test results, vaccination certificates, doctor’s reports, medical and dental records, prescription medicine lists, and miscellaneous information. Childhood Medical Journal replaces this unmanageable folder of vital health records with an app that keeps everything organized and at hand.

Parents begin using Childhood Medical Journal by entering the name, sex, and birthdate of the child in the Personal Information window. Each child can be assigned one of 256 different colors, and all their records are automatically color-coded. For archival purposes, parents can fill in the following text fields: time of birth, weight, length, head circumference, hair color, Apgar scores, place of birth, delivery doctor, complications (if any), mother’s blood type, father’s blood type, baby’s blood type, home address at time of birth, and where birth was registered.

Separate sub-categories let parents compile all their Emergency Contacts, including relations and contact numbers, doctors, hospitals, dentists, emergency rooms, etc. The Identification Marks window lets caregivers indicate any identifying marks on anterior and posterior infant outlines, including date and size of mark. Lastly, the Hospital Notes sub-category allows parents to record special instructions when going home from the hospital.

Each child has their own Home Page, from which parents can enter, look up, or share information using 16 different color-coded buttons:
* Personal Information – personal info, emergency contacts, ID marks, hospital notes
* Notes & Questions – collected notes and questions
* Observation Tracker – food tracking log with feedings, activity chart with temperature
* Immunizations – vaccination records including date, time, and any reaction; vaccine chart with administration schedule from ages 0 to 18; 12 major vaccines with explanations
* Hospital Visits – log of hospital name, date, and reason for visit
* Specialist Consults – physician and contact, reason, date, and treatment
* Office Visits – routine exams (date, age, weight, length, head size, vitamins, questions to ask, instructions, next visit; clinical visits (date, illness, location, treatment)
