If you're interested in PHRs, check out the following article at IBM's HealthNex blog:



I am new to this, and as I look around at the literature, I see alot of mixed comparison. I am putting together a database with tables and reports that the patient fills out. No doctor's record or chart needed (or desired). It goes on a CD, and your file can be stored on the computer or the CD. There is a "print all" function but it produces alot of output. The main problem is that I/the programmer have to creat tables in Access, so you are actually filling in a pre-designed one.

Any help on content would be appreciated. I did not use Diagnosis because that is doctor-speak. And a doctor would not take the patient seriously.
