personal health record (PHR)

Personal Health Record (PHR) is a patient record, a collection of health-related information that is documented and maintained centrally by one entity, rather than by different clinicians.

PHR data can be very helpful in clinician decision-making because it complements Electronic Health Record (EHR) data maintained by physicians or health care providers.

Personal Health Records contain patient-related information such as patient demographic information about family history, in addition to information about physician visits, allergies, immunities, illnesses, medications administered, and hospitalizations.
