PHR
Would it make sense to have the ability for PHR that are available out there to talk with each other, or would we simply have to re-upload our CCD or records to a new one?

Answer Wiki:
That's definitely the idea behind some of the public PHRs like Google Health, Microsoft Health Vault, and others. Vendors are working on interoperability, but this can be a significant challenge given that so many patients travel internationally to get their medical care (medical tourism). We need global interoperability.
