Personal Health Record
Healthcare providers create medical records of your visits through EHRs (Electronic Health Records) or through paper charts. These records are the property of your healthcare provider, although you can request a copy of these records for your personal files.
A PHR (Personal Health record) is different from an EHR. A PHR is owned and updated by you, the patient and can be shared with other healthcare providers or anyone you might choose and it not subject to HIPPA regulations. The benefits of a HealthLynked PHR is that your records move with you, no matter where you are, and can be easily accessible if a medical problem arises or in the case of an emergency where having access to your medical information can save your life.
The HealthLynked app allows members to update their medical information in the comfort of their home to make sure all their information is correct and complete. Once your information is complete all you need to do is keep your profile updated when changes occur with your medical status.
Having a complete profile allows you to share this with the healthcare provider you choose, decrease office wait times and avoid redundant paperwork during office visits.
Through HealthLynked, you can Lynk to your personal network of healthcare providers, book online appointments, share medical records from other providers and stay on top of medical recommendation specific to your medical history.
