Unique Features in Personal Health Records

A personal health record (PHR) happens to be an electronic health record based on the Internet;

it allows individuals to create and maintain their personal medical data. Patients take ownership

of their health information and are permitted to manage a lifelong health history, control over the

information, and enter, edit, and delete content when and as required. PHRs differ from the

electronic health records (EHRs) that are maintained by physicians and practices at their offices.

The key difference is that PHRs are owned entirely by patients and can be shared with providers

at the time of need.

PHR Software system offers patients a comprehensive and integrated view of all their medical

information in digital mode, enabling them to take an active part in their health care and care

decisions. It is a patient-centered health care technology designed for tracking and supporting all

the medical activities involved in an individual’s entire life cycle. PHR is not just contained to

any particular practice or physician; it rather accumulates all the health care details of an

individual throughout life.
