Health Services Information: Personal Health Records as a Tool for Engaging Patients and Families

  • 1306 Accesses

Part of the Health Services Research book series (HEALTHSR)

Abstract

Personal Health Records have evolved from stand alone websites requiring manual entry of data to automated mobile applications fully integrated into care management workflow. Technology issues such as interoperability, security, and patient identification have matured. Policies such as who can see what for what purpose have been enumerated. Regulations now require a deeper level of interaction between care teams and patients. Many myths about the risks of engaging patients and families have been shattered. Research continues to expand the scope of information shared with families, enhance usability of patient facing applications, and improving the utility of solutions automating patient/provider workflow.
