to such scenarios, we propose an untethered patient health record system that manages personal health data by utilizing meta-data that enables easy retrieval of clinical data. We incorporate cloud-based storage for easy access and sharing with caregivers to implement continuity of care and evidence-based treatment. In emergency cases, we make critical medical information such as current medications and allergies available to relevant caregivers with valid license numbers only. Clinical data

Well-managed personal cloud space could outlive the lifetime of personal health records system (PHRS) since the discontinuity of the service does not affect the data stored in the cloud space. In our approach, we separate the clinical data from applications in order to make the data independent from the application. Also, the users can have alternative applications for their clinical data. Such independence motivates users to use PHRS with flexibility.
