nternet based personal health records (PHR) are an excellent way of insuring that an individual’s health data remains accessible during a natural disaster. In this discussion, you will assume the role of a health information specialist. A patient of your facility has come to you for advice in selecting an Internet based PHR. Read the article 9 Popular Personal Health Record Tools  (Links to an external site.)or you can do your own research and discuss a PHR system that you find. Evaluate three different free PHR systems that are web-based or software-based.  In your discussion:

  • Identify the three PHR options you reviewed.
  • Create criteria to evaluate the three different PHRs (what were you looking for in the product?). You must include a minimum of three criteria.
  • Determine which product you would select for your personal use.
  • Articulate at least three reasons for the product selection.
