The California HealthCare Foundation has published a report titled Perspectives on the Future of Personal Health Records. It briefly explores the PHR from six perspectives:
- The Big Picture Perspective
- The Consumer Perspective
- The Physician Perspective
- The Clinical Technology Perspective
- The Employer Perspective
- The Public Health Perspective
Another useful reference is the paper Personal Health Records: Definitions, Benefits, and Strategies for Overcoming Barriers to Adoption. The paper summarizes a symposium of the AMIA College of Medical Informatics in 2005.
Both publications are worth a look for anyone interested in PHRs.
