It may be a computerized print out from a clinic visit, or it may be a letter from a physician with lab and radiology results during a yearly exam. If you have children, you may have copies of when they received their immunizations. Or if you have done any traveling outside the United States, you have an immunization record. A collection of this information is the start of a personal health record. If you have a chronic health condition, you will have more information. For example, someone with a chronic kidney disease may keep lab results from year to year to make certain the kidney functions are stable and compare this laboratory data from year to year. A diabetic may record their blood sugar results daily to bring to their physician for medication adjustments. These are also personal health records. There are jobs that require yearly tuberculin skin tests and there are jobs that require hearing tests. People working in manufacturing jobs, for example, are exposed to high noise levels, and their employer has these employees tested. Many of these employees keep copies of these test results in their own personal health records. How a person keeps this information is entirely up to them. The older people probably keep paper copies in a file folder. The younger person probably keeps them on a computer program, so no paper is stored. We all have some information on our health concerns. It may be for only a short period of time or it may be for a longer length of time.
