As an incoming university freshman, I got my first taste of the real
word, and it was bittersweet. My mind was focused on finding classes,
highlighting textbooks, and making new friends. Everyone tells you
college is hard work and you are going to have to study your butt off.
However, no one tells you about all the other stuff, the real world
stuff. I didn’t know how to manage my finances, time, and health.
Parents, welcome to the PHR blog where you can connect and communicate with health information management professionals and eventually other parents about managing your child’s healthcare. Have you ever been on your way to the doctor’s office with your child and wondered about the details – diagnosis, medications prescribed, vaccinations, etc. – of your last visit?As a parent, you have so many responsibilities that it’s difficult to recall everything from day to day let alone last year. A personal health record can help ease your mind. This blog is a social network where you can interact with experts in the field to seek advice and tips for best practices in creating and maintaining your child’s personal health record and the best ways to use that information to play a more active role in their healthcare and simplify your life.
