Description:

The 'Finding the Right Clinical Notes' project, led by the University of Edinburgh, is intended to improve research access to personal health records in Scotland. Personal Health Records (PHRs) are defined as records that relate to the physical or mental health of an identifiable individual, made by or on the advice of a health professional in connection with that patient's care or treatment. The actual format and content of such records varies considerably according to the dictates of the period in which they were written. The website attempts to overcome the geographical dispersion of PHRs by providing a central database for researchers to locate relevant collections.Descriptions of over 1,000 record series have been added to the database, conforming to the General International Standard for Archival Description (ISAD(G), 2nd ed.) The descriptions have been indexed according to Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and other relevant historical terms. Users may search for records via personal name or free text, or browse the database according to subject term or repository. Records give detailed background information and bibliographic history along with the scope and content of the archived materials and their access conditions.As well as a description of the project, information about patient confidentiality is provided on the website, and there are links to other sites related to PHRs and their usefulness to research.The project received funding from the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP).
