Abortion remains a highly controversial topic in many countries, particularly in the United States. As the COVID-19 pandemic introduced new challenges and restrictions, society saw a marked increase in demand for self-managed care. Likewise, the utilization of abortion care via telemedicine sparked interest, especially in communities with high infection rates. However, as unregulated online forums became an outlet for the discussion of sensitive health-related topics, the spread of false and misleading information markedly increased. As patients continue seeking reliable health-related information, personalized solutions are needed to provide accurate, evidence-based insight. As a pillar in digital precision health, precision health promotion via Personal Health Library (PHL) could aid in equipping patients with the necessary information to support informed health decision-making. In previous works, we have proposed the utilization of a PHL for the self-management of disease and health promotion/education. Herein, we introduce our work-in-progress in implementing the PHL-Enabled Abortion Care and Education (PEACE) platform for facilitating and supporting reliable access to informative reproductive care, such as abortion via telemedicine.
