Personal Health Record (PHRs) represents the entities in a medical community and is readily used by the medical community to store and share individual medical data in an electronic format. The PHR consists of the individuals’ electronic medical record provided by health care practitioners as well as personal information entered in by the individual. PHRs currently exist within various domains and health information systems. Currently there are several medical sensor devices, standards, and health record formats, which have been integrated with PHR without emphasis to standard. Thus, in this paper we proses a framework, where it emphasizes the implementation of standards for data acquisition, storage and transmission in order to maximize the compatibility among disparate components, e.g. various PHR systems. Data from mobile biosensors is collected on a smartphone using the IEEE 11073 standard where possible; the data can be stored in a PHR on the phone (using standard formats) or can be converted in real-time into more useful information in the PHR, which is based on the International Classification for Primary Care (ICPC2e). The phone PHR data or information can be uploaded to a central online database server using both the WiFi or GSM transmission protocol and the Continuity of Care Record message format (CCR, ASTM E2369). In other words, our goal is to integrate remote monitoring from wearable medical sensor devices to PHR system accessible from anywhere, anytime.
