PHRs Sprotting Up Everywhere

January 24, 2007

WebMD is not only previewing their new website design here, but are also promoting a PHR called Personal Health Manager. This offering includes a variety of health management tools and benefits management, however, the preview site lacks a tour of features. It does attempt to provide some reassurance about privacy. There is also an interesting announcement which says “COMING SOON! Sign-in for employees and health plan members using Personal Health Manager powered by WebMD.” So it appears they have been marketing this to employers and health plans.

The other big announcement is Revolution Health, which received coverage in the Wall Street Journal. This Web 2.0 tool (rumored to be written with Rudy on Rails), already has the beginnings of social networking with 45,000 messages posted and more that that for ratings. It also features the ability to manage healthcare expenses, a much need service for consumers. It also include vetted content from Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic among others.
