Abstract

Nationwide, momentum is growing to provide patients with computer tools called personal health records (PHRs). These allows patients to participate in their healthcare management by viewing, editing, or discussing their own medical data. Historically, PHRs targeted consumers, but contemporary PHRs are increasingly aimed at providers and payers. This article reviews the types of PHRs that are currently available, discusses the PHR functionalities that offer the best value for a medical practice, and provides strategies for making purchasing decisions.
