Personal health records pull patient's data to one file: "A personal health record helps solve a big problem: Even if medical facilities create electronic health records, 'a consumer's health information is still going to be distributed across many health records,' Mon said. 'The PHR is the one place where you can accumulate all your health information in a consistent way to reflect your lifetime of care.'" We all have health records which we carry in our heads or on scraps of paper - only for most of us they are incomplete, disorganised or out of date. A PHR will fix many of these problems !
