Personal health records 

A PHR contains the same types of information as EHRs – diagnoses, medications, immunisations, family medical histories, and provider contact information – but is designed to be set up, accessed and managed by patients. Patients can use PHRs to maintain and manage their health information in a private, secure and confidential environment. PHRs can include information from a variety of sources including clinicians, home monitoring devices and patients themselves (ONC definition). Some patient portals have functions that are equivalent to PHRs.
