Register now for the event Adopting Personal Health Records hosted by Greater Machester Connected Health Ecosystem
Personal Health Records (PHRs) enable people to view their own medical records, book appointments, and upload and manage their own health information. NHS England is encouraging health care providers to adopt PHR solutions as way for patients to better control and manage their health and care.
This GM Connected Health Ecosystem meeting is a joint event organised by the Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester and Health Innovation Manchester. It brings together stakeholders from Greater Manchester (patients, health care providers, policy makers and industry partners) to explore and discuss their views and expectations of PHRs.
