Physiology is the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical processes of living organisms function as a whole. Physiology is also the study the interaction of how, for example, the nervous, immune, endocrine, respiratory, and circulatory systems, function and interplay. The study of these systems is shared with such medically oriented disciplines as neurology and immunology. The theme of structure to function is central to biology. Physiological studies have traditionally been divided into plant physiology and animal physiology, but some principles of physiology are universal, no matter what particular organism is being studied. For example, what is learned about the physiology of yeast cells can also apply to human cells. The field of animal physiology extends the tools and methods of human physiology to non-human species. Plant physiology borrows techniques from both research fields.

Privacy and Security, are still important issues connected with Electronic Health Records (EHR). EHRs allow providers to use information more effectively to improve the quality and efficiency of your care, but EHRs do not change the privacy protections or security safeguards that apply to health information. EHRs Personal Health Records (PHR) are electronic versions of the 1) ___ charts in doctor's or other health care provider's offices. An EHR may include one's medical history, notes, and other information about one's health including symptoms, diagnoses, medications, lab results, vital signs, immunizations, and reports from diagnostic tests such as x-rays. The information in EHRs can be shared with other organizations if the computer systems are set up to talk to each other. Information in these records should only be shared for purposes authorized by law or by individuals. There are privacy rights whether information is stored as a paper record or stored in an electronic form. The same federal laws that already protect health information also apply to information in EHRs.
