Electronic Personal Health Records Come of Age

ImageSpecial Supplement to American Journal of Medical Quality explores Personal Health Records

San Mateo, CA, May 15, 2006 – A special supplement to the May/June issue of the American Journal of Medical Quality (AJMQ) entitled "Electronic Personal Health Records Come of Age" provides a detailed explanation of Personal Health Records (PHRs) citing InterComponentWare's (ICW) PHR LifeSensor® and includes contributions from eHealth industry leaders and the Department of Health Policy faculty at Jefferson Medical College. It is anticipated that the AJMQ supplement will generate serious discussions about the use and functionalities of current PHR technology and the fuller potential and benefits of implementing PHRs with interoperable capabilities.

"We have chosen ICW and its LifeSensor PHR as the focus of the supplement, because it is a fine example of an internationally implemented system with great functionality", says David B. Nash, MD, MBA, Professor of Health Policy at Jefferson Medical College and Editor-in-Chief of AJMQ. Nash adds, "ICW's capability to provide interoperability for multiple healthcare stakeholders and its intuitive inclusion of the consumer in that process is key for a better exchange of information in the health system." The AJMQ supplement presents a detailed analysis of PHRs, their evolution and usage in the European Union and other overseas markets, as well as the perspective of key opinion leaders in health information technology.

The special supplement is derived from discussions during ICW's first meeting of its U.S. Advisory Board. The supplement is available from ICW free of charge (subject to available quantities).
