Learning from voices of experience: personal health records

The Patient Information Forum (PIF) has launched a guide sharing the experiences of people who have first-hand experience of developing or using personal health records.

With issues such as digital health, self-care and supported self-management dominating current health policy, PIF’s guide shares real life examples of how PHRs could impact people’s health and wellbeing, and change health services.

The PIF guide, Personal Health Records: learning from the voices of experience,  starts by exploring what sorts of PHRs are available and who might want them. It discuss aspects of PHRs that the people highlighted as being the most important, concluding with a checklist of key things to consider.
