Dossia is a Web-based framework for storing and managing personal health records (PHR). With Dossia, a qualified individual can aggregate his medical data from insurance claims and pharmacy records and store them in a private, encrypted electronic health record that can be securely accessed over the Internet. Dossia records are stored and served by a modified open-source Indivo server.
