Portable health profile
It’s important that you know and keep track of changes in your own health information. Because people see many different healthcare providers, this can be difficult to do. Using a portable health profile (PHP) can make keeping track of your health information easier. When you give healthcare providers the right information, you help them take better care of you. An example of a PHP has been provided for you. We suggest you write in pencil so you can update the PHP as things change. You can also find similar PHPs at:
my PHR, American Health Information Management Association
Your Family Member’s Personal Health Record, Next Step in Care
Our MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital website: Portable Health Profile (PHP) Data Collection Form
Please let us know if you need any help updating your PHP with the new information from your stay at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital.

There are a number of local support groups for persons with disabilities and their families. All are welcome to participate. These groups serve as a gathering place offering peer-to-peer support and advice in dealing with the daily challenges of living with a disability. They are an opportunity to learn from the experience of others, who once had the same questions as you, and for others to learn from your experience.
