The £1.8 million Leeds PHR programme will kick off next year, developed in 12-month blocks, as part of an initial three-year pilot led by Leeds City Council in partnership with NHS organisations across the city.
The technology will be built on an open-source platform for the health and care sector, developed in Leeds by the Ripple Foundation. It is hoped to build up to 1400 users during the three-year project.
Note: The Patient Information Forum has published a Guide on Personal Health Records – Learning from voices of experiences. The guide is for anyone who would like to find out about Personal Health Records (PHRs).
It shares the experiences of people who have first-hand experience of developing or using Personal Health Records. You can download the guide here: https://www.pifonline.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/PiF-PHR-Guide-2017-V2.pdf
