Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I. ) plans to jumpstart the use of personal health records through a trust fund that pays doctors.”  This will be an incentive program to give doctors $3 per patient using a PHR. Kennedy sees PHRs as an empowerment tool for citizens.  Others quoted see them as essential for disease management.
