Why is it important to store medical records systematically in an electronic format?

There are a number of reasons why you should do this:

To start with, old reports, even if they are normal, indicate your basal parameters and help the doctor to identify when the problem started
Physical records can get damaged – paper gets torn, X-rays turn yellow, ECGs fade, etc.
Physical records need space for storage and can be lost
It’s difficult to file all records date-wise in one place. Moreover X-rays, CT/MRI reports cannot be filed
When visiting the doctor, you may forget to carry certain/all medical records
When travelling, medical records are not carried along and if we fall ill, no data is available to the treating doctor
Last but not the least, systematic electronic storage of medical records gives the doctor holistic view of your health and also saves cost and time for repeating investigations.

I am young and healthy with hardly any ailments, nor a lot of medical data. Storing medical records may be important for old persons; why should I store them digitally?

It’s good that you are healthy but storing medical data digitally can have benefits for you too:

Your reports, even if normal, indicate your basal parameters for future reference
With increased incidence of lifestyle diseases like hypertension, diabetes etc. in younger people nowadays, you can monitor your health parameters closely with your PHR account
Your BMI and ideal body weight is auto-calculated, so you can keep a check on these
Your ‘family history of illness’ can be logged, which is useful for doctors while treating you any time in future
Your ‘Key Medical Information’ remains easily accessible to the treating doctor during an unforeseen event such as an accident or serious illness.
