Heart Health:

Take Control of your Health Information

We know how much living a life full of health and happiness is important to you. Making sure that everyone gets the best care available is one of the main ways to make that a reality. Owning and maintaining a Personal Health Record (PHR) is the first step to ensuring that your health is in your hands.

A Personal Health Record, or PHR, gives healthcare providers the most complete picture available of your current and past health, allowing them to provide the most effective, personalized and safe treatment possible for you and your family. You hold the pieces to your true picture of health. If you are looking for the tool to start protecting the ones that you love, you've come to the right place.

We'll help you get started. Visit the American Heart Association's PHR Resource Center today!
