Excerpts aren't necessarily from the first page of these research papers.

Excerpt from this paper: Personal health record - A personal health record or PHR is typically a health record that is initiated and maintained by an individual. An ideal PHR would provide a complete and accurate summary of the health and medical history of an individual by gathering data from many sources and making this information accessible online to anyone who has the necessary electronic credentials to view the information.

A personal health record is established when a patient is being seen initially by a health care provider. Patient’s history, allergies, medications, and other information is taken then and put together in an accessible electronic record. It can only be visible to health care professionals who are allowed to view the information.

Example 2

Page 2 of 5 pages

Excerpt from this paper: Personal health record - Personal health records are controlled by the individual patient. The information must also conform to nationally recognized interoperability principles. Personal health records are used by health care staff to learn information about patients. The information received may be information a patient does not want to share with anyone other than the provider. To better treat the patient, it is important to ask the patient questions about drug usage, medical history, family and social history to learn more about the person and the reason he or she might be ill.
