It is not uncommon when visits to a doctor or hospital require a health history provided by a patient or relative. Often, future visits require a repeat of the process. The easiest and fastest way to provide health information to your doctor should be via the internet. A PUHR would include all the known health data of every individual, including blood type, past illnesses, prescription history, allergies, surgeries, next of kin, etc.
PUHRs can be secured in the cloud and be available from any place at any time.
The information can be password protected or accessed through personal attributes,
such as the use of a fingerprint reader or retinal scan. Personal identifiers can be useful
in emergencies where the patient is unconscious. However, retrieval speed must be rapid and may not be available until improvements in processing and internet access provide an almost instantaneous response.
