myhealthlocker is a patient-focused website which allows service users to take an active role in their recovery and wellbeing by providing them with access to a personal health record. It has been developed by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust for young people with mental health problems.
Users can gather and store their own health information from a variety of sources, including their GP and hospital notes. They can also choose what information they want to share and who they share it with. Through the site, patients can access their care plans alongside resources, tips and support to help them manage their health and wellbeing. The clinical portal enables patients to enter information on their online record, allowing them to keep track of and monitor their wellbeing. These PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measures) can also be viewed by clinicians, helping them to make informed treatment decisions and assess the efficacy of different interventions.
