How can I get access to my mother's medical records?

My mother suffers from several serious medical conditions and sees a variety of specialists - some quarterly, some annually, and some only when she has a flare-up or episode. Several of these conditions, and/or the medications that treat them, impact her mental functioning. Every time she sees a doctor and I talk to her, I get the distinct impressions that she either hasn't given the doctor an accurate picture of what's going on with her, that she doesn't understand or remember what the doctor said, or both. I'd like to help her out by taking a look at her records and speaking with her doctors to make sure she's getting the treatment she needs and that it's being properly coordinated to account for her multiple conditions and multiple doctors.

Tips on keeping medical notes and records organized

I'm looking for tips on organizing personal medical records and information, assuming a chronic or complicated health problem. Things like X-rays and MRI discs, blood test results, prescriptions, notes taken during appointments with the doctor, notes made on non-appointment days about symptoms, medical history, insurance policies and bills, therapies tried and discontinued... what are great ways to keep it all organized, for ease of use (and consistent record-keeping) both for the patient and his care partners?
