Welcome To Melissa's Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My goal is to educate you on Personal Health Records, also called PHRs: what are PHRs, how they benefit you, how to start and maintain one and keep you posted on the latest in electronic personal health and medical record related news.  A PHR is a tool that the patient has to store and update their own medical information such as vaccinations, surgeries, allergies, medications and family history.  The PHR is owned and managed by the patient and is for the patient's benefit, not the doctor's.  In this digital age, it has become streamlined and can be all kept neatly on a patient portal.  To learn more, keep following my blog!
