  • Allow an individual to securely and effectively share health information with members of his or her social network.
  • Provide patients, caregivers and/or clinicians access to rigorous and relevant information that can support real needs and immediate decisions.
  • Allow individuals to connect during natural disasters and other periods of emergency.
  • Facilitate exchange of health information while allowing individuals to customize the privacy allowances for their personal health records.
