Medicare promoting PHR

A pilot program was launched this week in South Carolina for Medicare beneficiaries providing online access to claims information for either their hospital, their doctor or both.

Patients will be able to use the PHR to enter prescription information as well as any over-the-counter meds. Links to informational web sites related to their own health condition will also be available, and they can designate friends or relatives that can access their records.
