CMS will test use of Medicare data in commercial PHRs
Nancy Ferris reports in Government Health IT:
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is undertaking a third pilot program to test the use of online personal health records by Medicare beneficiaries. In the new pilot, CMS will populate commercial PHRs with Medicare claims data.
The agency plans to select as many as four commercial PHR vendors and give users a choice. As in the other tests, CMS will be examining what works and what doesnâ€™t as it tries to encourage Medicare beneficiaries to use PHRs.
