This is the first study to assess real-world use of an industry-leading patient portal (Kaiser Permanente’s My Health Manager) in a large, ethnically, culturally, socioeconomically, and educationally diverse sample of diabetes patients with a range of self-reported health literacy skills.
PHRs are still fairly new to the healthcare system, and we understand that as healthcare consumers, you have questions about the benefits and risks of keeping a PHR. For this reason, we provide a communication forum – the Seniors’ Blog – to connect you with health information management professionals for tips and advice on creating and maintaining your own PHR. This section of myPHR.com also provides resources and educational material about PHRs to answer some of your questions and help you determine if a PHR is right for you.
