Electronic Health Records (EHR) have been one of the factors in transforming healthcare and health management by providing electronic access to information recorded on paper charts. However, increasing interest of patients to be actively involved in the management of their condition and their health has necessitated evolution of EHRs so as to accommodate patients' role in the care loop. In response, Personal Health Records (PHR) have been developed that are patient-facing and provide the possibility to enrich EHRs data using data sources that have not been considered in the traditional healthcare, either due to unavailability or difficulty in acquiring data. An example of PHR is TreC platform, designed and validated by our research group. We provide an overview of TreC PHR, describe the challenges and provide an outlook on future opportunities.

Abstract

Electronic Health Records (EHR) have been one of the factors in transforming healthcare and health management by providing electronic access to information recorded on paper charts. However, increasing interest of patients to be actively involved in the management of their condition and their health has necessitated evolution of EHRs so as to accommodate patients' role in the care loop. In response, Personal Health Records (PHR) have been developed that are patient-facing and provide the possibility to enrich EHRs data using data sources that have not been considered in the traditional healthcare, either due to unavailability or difficulty in acquiring data. An example of PHR is TreC platform, designed and validated by our research group. We provide an overview of TreC PHR, describe the challenges and provide an outlook on future opportunities.
