Checklist for evaluating online PHRs

Checklist for evaluating online PHRs In researching commercially available personal health record products,CalRHIO found 61 different online PHR offerings. The Personal Health Record industry is at a very early stage of development. Currently there are no established standards, although
several have been proposed or are in formation. To help organizations and individuals that
are interested in using PHRs make the best choice among the proliferation of products,
CalRHIO developed a list of criteria for elements that should be included. The criteria provide
a minimal standard of completeness, usability, portability, and vendor stability. The criteria
provide a first-level screen. Consumers will need to apply their own situation and needs to
determine which product is the best fit. Proposed criteria and the rationale for each appear in the chart An evaluation score card also follows. These documents are available online at www.calrhio.org.
