General Physicians or Specialists who has less number of patients often cannot afford to buy high end Practice management software which often costs thousands of dollars. Online Personal health record (PHR) sharing system is an emerging patient oriented model created for health information exchange following all HIPAA regulations, Using this application patient can share his/her health record with organizations (Hospitals, Health insurance firms.. etc.). It is an application which helps connect doctors and billers together and provides hassle free experience and it does not need any additional plugins or hardware and can be accessed from any device like personal computer, laptop or tablets instantly.

In this application we are providing two registration forms, one for Patient and another for organization, unless patient or organization registers they will not be able use this application. If patient wants to share information with a third person who is not registered with the application they can do it so without any fright of exploitation of their record as the files would be encrypted and can only be accessed by the key. This key is system generated and it is generated at the time of patient sending his/her Health Record.

For the patients, it gives the pleasure of staying at ease about their scheduled appointments with the doctor also providing them a platform to save their medical history at one organized easily accessible place to share, study and review.

For the medical billers, PHR is a boon which saves the staff a lot of time to access the record and bill the patients’ insurances effectively complying with HIPAA norms.
