The Importance of Maintaining your Personal Health Records

Within our brains, the hippocampus is responsible for recollections such as people, places and events. While our capacity to learn and remember is unlimited, stress can make us temporarily forget even obvious items. While science doesn’t have all the answers about memory, researchers have learned that the causes for short-term memory loss can be due to chemical secretions produced by the body to defend itself. Most memory failures will reverse themselves in a few days if the stress alleviated.

A personal health record (PHR) permits you to securely gather, store, manage and share your own and your family's health information - when you want, where you want, and with whom you choose.

  1. Medical decisions often rely on the signs and symptoms of their patients. In addition, they also look for medical factors in their patient's history. PHR offers a framework of efficiency by organizing such information in a repertoire that can be accessible at any given time. Sophisticated practice management softwares can aid the doctor in arriving at the most appropriate recommendations concerning the health of a certain patient.

    Indeed PHR can drastically affect the quality of health care in the country. I surely look forward to more updates regarding this issue. Thanks!
