Global e-PHR was designed to properly support patient’s needs and rights.
The top 5 values associated with e-PHR are credibility, confidentiality, authenticity, inviolability and portability.
Most of these values are already covered by medical records used in clinic and hospital facilities, but none of them are immediately available for patient use.
What makes Global e-PHR different is its portability, since all medical information is in patients’ hands right away, on real time.
In addition, credibility is assured because only attending physicians are allowed to write in patient's Global e-PHR. Each physician intervention is properly registered and electronic signed, providing authenticity. The use of specific, non-transferable usernames and passwords for patients, physicians and institutions makes Global e-PHR confidential. Once data have been uploaded and saved by physicians, the information cannot be erased, providing clinical data inviolability.
Using Global e-PHR the patient has permanent access to his medical data, can share data at his discretion, can continuously criticize the quality of uploaded data, further interacting with his physicians, better understanding his health problems and fully exerting a sharing-decision making.
Since Global e-PHR is centered on the patient needs and rights, it is timeless.
Advances in technology could be easily incorporated, using the same framework.
Global e-PHR was designed to meet the objectives of all stakeholders.
