Personal Health Records

Your personal Health record or (PHR) is a collection of important information that you maintain about your health and that you continue to update as you receive medical care or treatment. It is a valuable tool to help you play an active role in the quality of your health care. At Gaylord, we understand the importance of maintaining a personal health record and support providing our patients with valuable information to include in your PHR to help support ongoing care and treatment.

At the time of admission to Gaylord Specialty Healthcare, we offer our inpatients the option to receive (an abstract) a collection of pertinent medical record documentation related to their stay, free of charge. After discharge, the information will be saved to a compact disc (CD) and mailed to your home address. You may then share the information contained on the disc with other medical providers.
