Where can I find more information about the Surgeon General's revised family health history tool?

HIM-HIPAA Insider, January 20, 2009

A: On January 13, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the release of a revised Internet-based family health history tool, "My Family Health Portrait," that will enable consumers to more easily share health history information, according to an HHS press release. The original tool launched in 2004. However, the newer version was developed according to standards based on HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt’s Initiative on Personalized Health Care.
