Personal Health Record (PHR) Systems: An Evolving Challenge to EHR Systems: "The current healthcare system must evolve from the doctor-centered production system of today to a more holistic, integrated person-centered system of the future. We must better understand that each of us is the primary healthcare provider for ourselves. In many ways, people are becoming their own 'ConsumerMD', supported by advanced information systems, technologies, and processes that enable self-care. The rise of Personal Health Record (PHR) systems will play a key role in this impending change."
