Patient Privacy Rights grades PHRs

Patient Privacy Rights has issued a privacy-oriented report card on some of the available PHRs (personal health records).

Inspection of the summary chart suggests that if you’re concerned about people accessing your information, be very cautious about using PHRs where “partners” or add-on programs or providers of tools may not have clear policies that tell you how they will or might use your data or that do not allow you to track who has accessed your information. While a platform may allow you to totally remove your data and information, their partners or add-on programs may not all you to do.
