Personal Health Records (PHR)
AHIMA’s website, myPHR.com, is a one-stop resource for information on personal health records. Why are PHR’s important? There are many reasons why maintaining a PHR is very important. A PHR can:
Be a very effective tool for communicating your health care history with a variety of providers
Eliminate duplicate or unnessary tests
Provide information to health care providers while you are traveling
Keep track of vaccinations and medication changes.
