What is the difference between personal health records and personal medical records?
I have been researching about Personal Health Records and have found that they are collections of health and medical data. I can't find the difference between a medical one and a personal one.
One's personal health record is kept in files known as medical records in one's hospital and doctors' offices. Where ever you have been treated medically, there will be a file (aka a chart) on you that includes which doctor saw you, the diagnosis, what treatment was prescribed, etc. To clarify: Your "personal health record" is kept in your "personal medical record." This is my understanding from working in a Family Practice behind the scenes as office personnel.
