This module (i.e. Patient Portal) allows you to create a patient controlled health records application. It gives the patient the full control of his/her own health records and other personal information, and enables him/her to share part or all of those information to any one in his/her social network such as a family member, a doctor, or any other caregiver he/she trusts.
How can the Patient control his/her own health records through this module?
This is the main page in the module that has all the options for the patients.
Journals gives the ability to writes posts and share it with the Doctor/Caregiver helping others better understand their conditions and state of mind.
This allows the person to manage their relationships with Doctors/Caregivers, Family and Friends. The patients can control what level of permission he wants to allow their connections to have over his profile.
This has a summary of his general history and all the Cancer treatments he had undergone.
These are the side effects that the patient might experience due to his conditions and treatments.
This gives the patient details regarding the communities available near him.
|1||Write and share a journal entry||Pete is feeling unusually well after chemotherapy.

|16||Import professional tweets||If a physician user opts in, he can share his tweets with his patients. These tweets might include interesting articles or valuable advice or encouragement. The idea here is that physicians do not have a lot of time to check several social networks, so the more that we can integrate this one with existing ones, the better.||Nice to have|
