Personal Health Records Organizer Information From AsYouAge


A personal health records organizer (PHR) should include the personal and health information you may need to share with health care providers, caregivers and/or family members.  It’s always a good idea to keep this information up-to-date and all together in an easy-to find place in case of emergency.

12 Types Of Information To Include                                                 In A Personal Health Record (PHR)

  1. 1. Your PHR should have your current personal information, like your

        name, birth date, and address.  (It’s also a good idea to include        

        a recent picture of yourself with your personal information.
