Abstract [en]

As part of the ongoing shift in health policy, with focus on patient empowerment, the Swedish government prioritizes the patients’ access to their medical records. Different models for personal health records (PHR) are suggested.

Studies have shown difficulties for patients when navigating and understanding the information in their records. Electronic health record systems are physician-oriented and do not include patient-oriented functions. One problem with medical records is that they contain a lot of data which is usually kept as unstructured text in narrative form; this information overload needs to be structured and presented in a manner that patients understand. Furthermore, in order for the PHR to be a supporting tool for patients, there is a need to identify which key functions should be implemented to support patients. Usage of PHR is highly dependent on the information offered and that functions available meet patient needs. In Sweden, little research has been conducted regarding PHR functions  referred by patients. This study addresses the research question “Which PHR functions are preferred by patients living in Sweden?”.
