Insurance groups work together to speed adoption of PHR

Managed Care Weekly Advisor, January 24, 2007

America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) are working together to develop a new personal health record (PHR) model to give consumers greater access to information about their health and healthcare.

The two plans, which cover more than 200 million people, have identified the essential information to include in PHRs, and have tested standards that enable consumers to transfer PHR data when they change coverage, ensuring portability and privacy.
