AHIMA to launch PHR campaign

October 2, 2007

The American Health Information Management Association is unveiling a promotion of PHRs to the general public at their annual meeting starting the 8th of October. “AHIMA believes patients should be in control of their personal information and that the association is well-placed to help them develop PHRs.” according to Modern Healthcare. They find that patients with chronic conditions are particularly in need a of a PHR because of the amount of data and paper they must manage. Part of the campaign will be through their website, The site is one of the best to educate the general public but stays neutral on the best type of PHR. This is unlike the new HIMSS position statement on PHRs which has specific recommendations, however, these are not yet for the lay public.
