Why should everyone have a PHR?

We believe that all individuals should be able to readily access, understand, and use their personal health information. A PHR allows individuals to be more active partners in their healthcare, and gives them up-to-date information when and where they need it. A PHR provides a single, detailed profile of a person's health status and healthcare activity. It facilitates informed decisions about the care of the individual. It may also reduce duplicate procedures or processes, such as repeated lab tests and x-rays, saving time and money. A PHR helps people prepare for appointments, facilitates care in emergency situations, and helps track health changes.

What should a PHR contain?

The PHR should contain any information relevant to an individual's health. In addition to medical information such as test results and treatments, a PHR may include diet and exercise logs or a list of over-the counter medications. It can be more comprehensive than a medical record. A PHR should contain the following information:

  • Personal identification, including name and birth date
  • People to contact in case of emergency
  • Names, addresses and phone numbers of your physicians, dentists and specialists
  • Health insurance information
  • Living wills, advance directives, or medical power of attorney
  • Organ donor authorization
  • A list of dates of significant illness and surgical procedures
  • Current medications and dosages
  • Immunizations and dates
  • Allergies or sensitivities to drugs or materials such as latex
  • Important events, dates and hereditary conditions in your family
  • Results from a recent physical examination
  • Opinions of specialists if applicable
  • Important test results and dates of tests, eye and dental records
  • Any correspondence between an individual and their provider
  • Current educational materials, or appropriate web links relating to one's health that could be used for discussion at the time of a provider visit
