Helpful Article on Choosing a PHR

September 14, 2007

In U.S. News and World Report, a brief article on selecting a PHR provides a good introduction to PHRs.

Examples are giving of desktop programs, internet-based and flash drives. Teathered PHRs which connnect to EMRs are also mentioned. The articles touts some benefits as well: “the payoff …is that patients become more knowledgeable about and more accountable for their health and their treatment.”

Missing in the article is information about security and long-term storage of records. But for this abbreviated view, the publication provides a good overview.

Also, I stumbled upon a new blog worthy of note: EHR PHR and Patient Portals by Electronic Health Record Consultants.
