Personal Health Records: An Overview of What Is Available to the Public

This study provides a scan of the PHR marketplace between April and November 2005. Among the issues considered in the study are: how the PHRs are accessed by users (e.g., Internet-based or PC-based); subscription costs; the content of the PHR; and privacy policies applicable to each product. In addition, the author identifies questions about PHR products that need to be addressed in the future, such as the experience of users with particular products and the need for further investigation of privacy policies and data security; she recommends that PHR development and use should be monitored to learn how/whether consumers use this type of decision tool.
