Benchmarking survey: PHRs remain unchartered territory for some
HIM Briefings, January 1, 2009
Personal health records (PHR) can literally change the world. Sound a bit lofty? Kerry Weems, acting administrator for CMS, doesn’t think so.
Weems was not alone in encouraging HIM directors at the 80th annual AHIMA conference in Seattle October 12–15 to think big when pondering PHRs and patient-centric care.
PHRs will significantly affect healthcare delivery and health information technology, and directors should welcome the change, Weems said.
