Web service offers easy access to health records

Web service offers easy access to health records: "In Congress last month, Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., introduced a bill to give physicians a $2 incentive for each patient of theirs who creates a personal health record. A study by the Institute of Medicine and the Institute of Healthcare Improvement said the use of technology and personal health records could put the U.S. on a path to reduce the mortality rate by 25 percent."

If doctors are given financially incentives to create PHRs for their patients, this will be a major catalyst in ensuring a high level of PHR penetration !
