Medicare Launches Medicare Personal Health Record Choice Pilot

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today announced the launch of the Medicare PHR Choice Pilot in Arizona and Utah. This pilot program will offer beneficiaries with Original Medicare the opportunity to choose one of the personal health record (PHR) products offered by the companies selected for the pilot. PHRs will allow beneficiaries to maintain their health record information electronically and Medicare will add claims data directly to the PHRs for this pilot.


CMS’ contractor, Noridian Administrative Services (NAS), is coordinating this pilot program.
