3144.0 PHI Interoperability Initiatives - Part I

Monday, October 31, 2011: 10:30 AM
Personal Health Information (PHI) will be a key building block in getting consumers engaged in the use of personal health records (PHRs). Continuity of care, patient adherence, and racial or ethnic variations in health status and outcomes will become increasingly more discernible as the use of PHRs becomes more widespread. This session will explore these dynamic interactions.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1. define personal health information (PHI), and describe how PHI facilitates health information exchange (HIE); 2. discuss internet usage in the US for the purpose of seeking medical information.
