Introduction: Patient-centered care is one of the six major aims to achieve high quality healthcare.  Personal health records can improve patient-centered cares. Also, there is growing desire to use internet and its services in healthcare. The purpose of this study was to design the architecture of personal health record system in the health social network platform.
Methods: In this descriptive study, designing the architecture of the proposed system was done by Unified Modeling Language (UML). First, system components and their relationships were modeled by class diagram. Then, the use-case diagram showed how the proposed system interacts with its environment. Ultimately, the activities in the main process of the proposed system were modeled by the activity diagram.Finally, the designed architecture was evaluated by scenario-based assessment (ARID) method.
Results: The scenario-based assessment (ARID) showed that the designed architecture by UML and determined relationships between components, systems and users from the structural and behavioral perspective could meet all expected scenarios from the proposed system.
Conclusion: The modeling of the proposed system showed that a social network can meet the features of personal health record and the expectations of its users. The use of web 2.0 and its services lead to better and faster information exchange and dissemination, training, emotional support and etc.
Keywords: Patient-centered care, Personal health record, web 2.0, Social network, Unified Modeling Language
