A recent Lake Research Partners survey
suggests that patients who use a personal health record (PHR) service are more likely to pay increased attention to and take steps to improve their own health, Moreover, though only 7% of Americans use a PHR service, 40% expressed interest in doing so.
Is your organization working with a PHR service, whether it's a free service (such as Microsoft HealthVault
or Google Health
), a paid service or a home-grown system? How valuable has it been for physicians and patients? And, if you're not using PHRs, what obstacles stand in the way?
