How personal health information is used?

By its very nature, healthcare deals with sensitive details about a patient, including birthdate, medical conditions etc. Whether in paper-based records or an electronic health record (EHR) system, PHI explains a patient's medical history, including ailments, various treatments and outcomes.

From the first moments after birth, a baby today will have PHI entered into an EHR, including weight, length, body temperature and any complications during delivery. Tracking this type of medical information during a patient's life offers clinicians context to a person's health, which can aid in treatment decisions.

In the bigger picture, PHI can be stripped of identifying features and added anonymously to large databases of patient information. Such de-identified data can contribute to population health management efforts and value-based care programs.
