PHR Data

When you sign up for a PHR, you provide, or the PHR company or its service providers, import information about you that becomes the PHR Data. Any information in your PHR is considered PHR Data. PHR Data might include, but is not limited to:

  • Your name and contact information, such as your address, phone number, or email address
  • Your medical history, conditions, treatments, and medications
  • Your healthcare claims, health plan account numbers, bills, and insurance information
  • Demographic information, such as your age, gender, ethnicity, and occupation
  • Computer information, such as your IP address and “cookie” preferences

A PHR company (and its service providers) may use your PHR Data to:

  • Operate and manage its PHR platform, software, and website
  • Maintain and protect its computer systems
  • Comply with the law, such as responding to subpoenas and search warrants

Personal Data and Statistical Data are the two types of PHR Data.
