This paper discusses the importance of a Patient Centric Health Record system. Such systems can empower patients to participate in improving health care quality. It would also provide an economically viable solution to the need for better healthcare without escalating costs by avoiding duplication. The proposed system is Web-based so patients and healthcare providers can access it from any location. Moreover the architecture is cloud-based so large amount of data can be stored without any restrictions. Also the use of cloud computing architecture will allow consumers to address the challenge of sharing medical data that is overly complex and highly expensive to address with traditional technologies.
