NHS Apps Library
The NHS Apps Library offers trusted digital tools, for people to manage and improve their health. Some of these apps are PHRs.
To add your PHR to the NHS Apps Library, you will need to answer some digital assessment questions (DAQs).
This is to check that your app meets NHS quality standards, for clinical effectiveness, safety, usability and accessibility.
The library gives healthcare commissioners an efficient way to choose apps that can achieve the standards, or those that need more work.

Learn from LHCR communities
There is a 'Learning from Local LHCR Community' platform which:
- allows users involved in care records to view the latest, news, events and guidance on care records
- features profiles and case studies of the Local Health and Care Record Exemplars and Local Shared Care Records across England
- allows users to collaborate to solve common problems
Email email@example.com to join the 'Learning from Local LHCR Community' platform.
Personal Health Records should be interoperable, to work with systems in other organisations.
PHRs need to be built on open standards, to support joined-up care. This allows information to be shared across a range of health and care settings.
INTEROPen is a collaboration of individuals, industry, standards organisations and health and care providers.
They are working together to speed up the development of open standards for interoperability in the health and social care sector.
An INTEROPen PHR sub-group is developing open standards for PHRs, to support the sharing of information between individuals and professionals.
You'll then be granted access to the INTEROPen discussion forum.
