TreC Project: a Personal Health Record System for Citizens

Project researchers

TreC is a territorial Personal Health Record, a digital platform that enables all citizens living in the Trentino Region to access, supplement, manage and share their own health and wellbeing information through a secure access. Conceptualized, designed and coordinated by e-Health Research Unit of Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) though a public project funded by Provincia autonoma di Trento (PAT), TreC addresses three of the main challenges of mature healthcare systems:

- providing services to citizens;

- providing self-tracking tools for wellbeing;

- providing tools for improving care of chronic disease.

Compared to systems technically similar to it such as those used by physicians, a Personal Health Record is different as it assigns a central role to lay users (citizens) and because of the complex network of actors it aims at connecting (citizens, GPs, hospitals, laboratories, health institutions).

From August 2012 TreC is one of the services of our Provincial Health Care System. From December 2013 the TreC platform has been included into the Italian national list of reusable programs. TreC has been selected as one of the best practice of public procurement.

 “TreC” is an acronym for Cartella Clinica del Cittadino – Citizens’ Clinical Record [Technology Readiness Level (TRL): 9].
