My Care Matters A secure online place to record the information you want health professionals to know about you as a person. We ask hospitals using Mycarematters to provide a way of displaying a person's Mycarematters profile behind their bed, and we provide blank charts for those people who do not wish to or are unable to use the Internet. The idea is that the information, short enough to be read at a glance, is available to everyone interacting with the patient.
