Trenton Community Clinic also has access to PHR

What is the Personal Health Record?

The Indian Health Service Personal Health Record (PHR) can help you access your health information. You can track medications and lab results, contact your health care provider, and much more - all from the privacy of your personal computer and mobile device.

Who can use the Personal Health Record?

Any patient within the Indian Health System can register to use the PHR. As part of the registration process, patients must verify their identity at an Indian Health Service, tribal, or urban health care facility.

When should I use the Personal Health Record?

The PHR is a tool that provides you with timely access to your health information. It is not a substitute for meeting with your health provider. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or go immediately to the closest emergency room.

Step 1

  1. Go to in your web browser.
  2. Click the button labeled “register to use PHR.”
  3. Choose username and password
  4. You will be asked to enter some information about yourself. When you are finished, you will get a message asking you to go to your hospital or clinic to finish the registration process.

Step 2

  1. You will need to meet with the hospital or clinic’s PHR registrar. This person will activate your account.
  2. Bring in your ID

Step 3

We also have the Native American Resource office, the Community Health Representatives and Public Health Nursing available to our clients.  Our grant program, Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) is housed in the Wellness Center

Our service area consists of three North Dakota counties, Williams, Divide and McKenzie and three Montana counties, Richland, Roosevelt and Sheridan.  Even though we service all Native Americans in these counties, we do not deny services for any Native American that presents to the clinic with verification of enrollment and decency   to a federally recognized tribe.  We currently provide Purchased and Referred Care for only Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa’s residing in the service area.  We are funded yearly on the User Population of Turtle Mountain Chippewa, and we serve many others, so it is imperative to us and the continued care of our clients to apply for all health insurance so that we may bring more dollars into the clinic which in turn, provides more services.

Watch for further updates with our contact list of employees and the services that they provide for you.
