PERSONAL HEALTH RECORDS

Back

Creating your own personal health record (PHR) is a great way to take charge of your health and well-being. A personal health record is your own collection of information about your health. This is different than an electronic health record that is maintained by your doctor’s office.

Having a personal health record can help if you move, switch healthcare providers, or seek treatment when you are out of town and you need to provide your health history. It can also help in an emergency or urgent situation when it is difficult to remember information correctly.

Health-N-Wellbeing
Here’s some suggestions about information you may want to include in your PHR:

  • Names and contact information for your healthcare providers
  • Emergency contact
  • Health insurance information
  • The current medications you are taking along with dosages
  • Allergies
  • Genetic/hereditary conditions in your family
  • A list of major illnesses and surgeries
  • Recent results from doctor visits
  • Test results
  • Eye and dental records

Concordia encourages you to set up your own PHR. There are many websites that have a system where you can input and access your information.  Here’s a link to Microsoft’s free PHR website called HealthVault: http://www.healthvault.com.  Online PHR systems are not covered by HIPAA privacy laws, but most have a privacy policy that is similar. Please read the privacy information before you start an account with HealthVault or any other PHR system.
