Health information technology will be integral to the US transformation to a safer, more efficient, consumer-driven healthcare system, and the personal health record (PHR) will be a valuable asset to individuals and families, enabling them to integrate and manage their healthcare information through secure, standardized tools. It is imperative that patients, healthcare providers, and payers work together to develop a PHR model. Establishing a common data set is a vital starting point.
