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