Personal Health Records (PHRs) is based on cloud virtual machine in web oriented application in which the lifelong health data of patients are stored. In this paper, we present PHR Machines, a cloud-based PHR system taking a radically new architectural solution to health record portability. In PHR Machines, healthrelated data and the application software to view and analyze it are separately deployed in the PHR system. After uploading their medical data to PHRMachines, patients will be able to access them again from remote virtual machines that contain the right software to visualize and analyze them without any need for conversion. Patients will be able to share their remote virtual machine session with selected caregivers. The person will need only a Web browser to access the pre-loaded fragments of their lifelong PHR.
