It is desirable for healthcare systems to assure continuity through all the stages of care - prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, promotion - as well as across places. The Personal Health Record (PHR) can meet this goal by providing a uniform record hosted and managed by individuals through life, and can be accessed by authorized healthcare providers at anytime and anyplace. The PHR brings healthcare providers a new opportunity to influence patients'/consumers' health management. Many types of PHRs are being created by vendors or agencies; however, there has been no PHRs encompassing nursing elements although nursing, as an essential component of health care, must be represented in a PHR. This study developed an internet-based PHR using standardized nursing languages (SNLs) for self-assessment of health status. Our PHR would be a pioneer example to demonstrate how nursing can be integrated in a PHR. This PHR is attributed with the following innovations: first, this PHR embraces main community health concerns in Iowa: mental health, child health, and cancer prevention. Second, this record employs an interactive type of website that allows individuals to be actively involved in their healthcare plan; users can assess and upload their own health observations, and receive feedback from the website or the affiliated healthcare providers. In creating the self-assessment and feedback fields, SNLs-the Nursing Outcomes Classification and the NANDA Taxonomy with Gordon's functional health patterns-were used to construct appropriate questions adjusted for the consumer vocabulary level. Selecting and converting indicators to questions was conducted by experts. Lastly, this PHR has a user-friendly interface equipped with trending of health conditions and a diary function. The features and functionality of this PHR were evaluated by experts in terms of content, ease of navigation, time needed to complete tasks, ability to find desired information, site presentation, and usefulness of information. When we regard the PHR as a common platform bonding healthcare consumers and providers in different locations, and nursing as a vital care across places and over time, this PHR will provide a way to expand nurses' role for continuity of care in the present information age.
