My Medical Record is your personal health record (PHR) provided by University Hospital Southampton. It’s a secure, patient-owned record that can:
My medical record stores and displays the personal and medical information held in your OpenPHR record, some of which will be loaded from hospital systems. Information can be viewed and shared securely from any web enabled device, such as computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
It allows you to add your own information about your health, including details which may be being monitored as part of your current treatment, such as your weight or blood pressure. In some cases this may reduce the need for you to attend outpatient appointments. You can also keep a record of anything that you think might be relevant to your overall healthcare, such as medications or emergency contacts.
Any patient of the University Hospital Southampton can use the service to perform actions such as receive documents, results and manage their appointments, My medical record also has a range of condition specific tools.
UHS and the Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight CCG have been successful in winning a Digital Health Partnership Award as part of the Support People at Home programme which is designed to help NHS organisations in England bid for funding to accelerate the adoption of digital health technologies to support patients with long term conditions. The programme focusses on how digital products and services can support people to remotely monitor their health at home or in the community.
The aim of the project is to scale up the use of My Medical Record which currently only has usage within acute settings, and to implement and assess the effectiveness of the platform within a primary care setting.
We are looking to hear from interested PCNs that want to empower patients to take ownership of their own care with potential for developing virtual pathways. The completion of an independent evaluation by the Wessex Academic Health Science Network will validate the effectiveness of both the implementation and the digital technology, providing learning that can be utilised for further rollout across the region.
