As a patient advocate at your facility and a member of the EHR task force, you have been asked to create a one page flyer for the PHR that your facility is in the process of rolling out. This information sheet must define the PHR, explain the benefits of a PHR, and give patients the particulars of the PHR that your facility is offering. You must explain that the PHR will allow patients to have access to test results, key clinical findings, and give them secure e-mail access to their doctors and health care professionals.
