TreC - a REST-based regional PHR

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2011:169:108-12.


The Personal Health Record (PHR) is progressively becoming a fundamental tool to allow people to control their health. User needs, however, impose to design a PHR solution that must offer a great flexibility in terms of managing heterogeneous health data, composing data in higher level concepts and interfacing the PHR with different devices to collect and visualize data. We propose to adopt REST as core of a regional PHR architecture and present a PHR based on this architecture implemented and tested in our Province.
