ABSTRACT
The article reports on the personal health records (PHR) project of the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). During the program, eligible Medicare beneficiaries will choose from several PHR tools and have up to two years of their data transferred into their individual record. One of the benefits of the PHR is giving patients more control over their health records and allowing them to share the responsibility for data with the CMS.
