Personal Health Records: The Notebook


As consumers, this video is a personal account of our family’s challenges and how we came to realize the benefits of using a Personal Health Record to coordinate our father's complex medical care in the last years of his life.

The PHR helped our family to:

  1. Improve quality of care and patient care experience
  2. Increase communication between the care teams, patient and family
  3. Coordinate complex medical appointments
  4. Avoid duplication of diagnostic tests
  5. Reducing errors in recording and reporting health history and medications.
  6. Provide accurate and timely reports with clear instructions.
  7. Decrease patient/family/caregiver anxiety
