Online Personal Health Record

Use the Personal Health Record (PHR) to organize and store important medical and healthcare-related information. Create folders for yourself, family members, or others you care for. The information is stored on a secure, Verisign-encrypted server, the same type of security used in online banking. Unlike the medical files you may keep at home, your Network of Care PHR is available whenever and wherever you need it.

If you choose to, you can grant access to your PHR to others, such as a physician, lawyer, family member, trusted caregiver or friend. You decide what information to share, and for how long.

This secured environment is also the gateway to other secure Network of Care (NOC) resources. To ensure your privacy, this is where articles and service links you collect on the NOC are stored.

 

Personal messages are also viewed in your PHR, such as correspondence from a healthcare provider, email from a private NOC support group, or notices about bills you’re tracking through the Legislature.

To access these and other features, you need a Network of Care account. An email address is all that’s required.
