As an “accidental prostate cancer survivor,” I’m now a big fan of personal health records (PHR) and annually reviewing what’s contained in those records. A movement toward creating PHR’s is underway. Microsoft has their Health Vault and Google has released the beta version of Google Health. I’ve just started to test them so I can’t provide an evaluation, but it’s a step in the right direction. The Robert Woods Johnson Foundation has an innovation program underway to move the PHP movement forward. Just visit the Project HealthDesign, a RWJF program, to see program details. Send us a note with your experiences if you are using a PHR.
I am a prostate cancer survivor, Class of 2003, retired Army officer, business owner, Senior Fellow at the Center for the Digital Future, Annenberg School, USC, USA Cycling coach, amateur competitive cyclist, Harley Davidson enthusiast, and writer.
