Two Announcements on Government Support for PHRs

March 13, 2007

In Government HealthIT today is a report on two announcements – one by HHS and one by ONCHIT regarding the enabling of personal health information. “HHS has announced it will launch a nationwide network of local and regional collaboratives. At the same time, the department will release a request for proposals for a new version of a health care network of networks that would be able to give consumers unprecedented control over the dissemination of their personal health care information.”

Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT), said the government will seek proposals for a state-hosted or regionally hosted network that could enable consumers to direct their personal health information toward — or away from — specific health care organizations.”

It will be worthwhile to follow these two initiatives as they unfold.
