There is an interesting paper by Roehrs and colleagues (Roehrs et al, 2017) titled ‘Personal Health Records: A Systematic Literature Review’.
Although there are some quantitative results in (Roehr et al, 2017) (e.g the description of the filtering of papers) the paper is primarily a qualitative study. The researchers have investigated the literature and developed a taxonomy of Personal Health Records based on their analysis. The taxonomy is
(a) Structure of the PHR
(b) Function of the PHR
(c) Architecture applied to the PHR
Personal Health Records
The concept of Personal Health Records (PHR) is distinct from Electronic Health Records (EHR). EHR’s are records created by a healthcare organisation whereas PHR’s consist of health records collected by a person from multiple sources (which can also include an EHR). This concept relates to healthcare apps and other sources of healthcare data.
