What is a PHR System?

A PHR is a tool that used to collect, track and share past and current information about individual health. All individuals should have immediate access to an accurate, reliable and complete PHR. They must have the control over how personal health information is accessed, used, and disclosed. A PHR may be separate from and does not normally replace the legal medical record of any provider. Experion Solution Experion came up with a mobile solution that enabled users to share personal health information with their physicians. The project involved the development of a mobile-based Personal Health Record application(PHR)for end users. The application stores health information (allergies, medications, test results, consultation summaries, emergency contacts, medical appointments, prescriptions, reminders, etc.) in one secure location. The solution is also integrated with Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems using HL7 standards.
