Abstract

This project, completed by an eight-person, two-state team, consisted of a comprehensive assessment of the climate for personal health record (PHR) adoption in New Mexico and Utah. It included a review of published literature and an assessment of stakeholder attitudes and opinions in the region. This exercise yielded several important findings that are summarized in this report and reflected in the recommendations. Overall, the research identified key areas instrumental to advancing provider, payor, and patient adoption of PHR technology. The recommendations seek to provide guidance on how to address these key areas.
