Personal Health Records      Stored in HealthVault

WhatsMyM3 allows users to store their responses for tracking, without charge, in Microsoft® Healthvault™. Healthvault is a Personal Health Record providing a confidential location for storing all your health information. A description of Personal Health Records (PHR) from Wikipedia is found below.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A personal health record or PHR is typically a health record that is initiated and maintained by an individual. An ideal PHR would provide a complete and accurate summary of the health and medical history of an individual by gathering data from many sources and making this information accessible online to anyone who has the necessary electronic credentials to view the information..

The term “personal health record” is not new. The earliest, English-language article indexed by PubMed that mentions the term is dated June 1978; however, search results from PubMed also reveal that most scientific articles written about PHRs have been published since 2000.

The PHR is an ill-defined concept that has been developing over several years.The term has been applied to both paper-based and computerized systems; however, current usage usually implies an electronic resource. In recent years, several formal definitions of the term have been proposed by various organizations. Although each definition is unique, most of the definitions agree that the PHR is a computerized application that stores an individual's personal health information.

It is important to note that PHRs are not the same as EHRs (electronic health records). The latter are software systems designed for use by health care providers. Like the data recorded in paper-based medical records, the data in EHRs are legally mandated notes on the care provided by clinicians to patients. There is no legal mandate that compels a consumer or patient to store her personal health information in a PHR.

PHRs can contain a diverse range of data but usually include information about: allergies and adverse drug reactions, medications (including dose and how often taken) including over the counter medications and herbal remedies, illnesses and hospitalizations, surgeries and other procedures, vaccinations, laboratory test results, and family history. In addition to storing an individual's personal health information, some PHRs provide added-value services such as drug-drug interaction checking or electronic messaging between patients and providers.
