Abstract

Personal Health Record (PHR) systems are growing in popularity and are receiving increased attention from the Biomedical Informatics research community. Information Collection is one PHR research topic and includes system functionality that helps patients retrieve their data from external sources. One of the most potentially useful external sources of information is the data stored in patients' EHRs at medical institutions. PHR systems that support Information Collection from EHR systems are thus interesting to investigate. In this paper we present PHR system that allows patients to receive data from 10 participating hospitals in Taiwan via a USB flash memory device. The overall design goals and architecture for the system are presented. Based on our experiences in designing and implementing the system we propose a three step method for accomplishing Information Collection from EHR systems at medical institutions for similar PHR systems in the future.
