What is PHR?
A personal health record is simply a collection of information about your health. If you have a shot record or a box of medical papers, you already have a basic personal health record. And you've probably encountered the big drawback of paper records: You rarely have them with you when you need them.
Electronic personal health record systems remedy that problem by making your personal health record accessible to you anytime via a Web-enabled device, such as your computer, phone or tablet.
