Medicare Pilot to Maintain PHRs

CMS is developing a pilot program to test options for beneficiaries to be able to maintain their health records electronically. Under this pilot in Arizona and Utah, a beneficiary may choose one of the selected commercial PHR tools, and Medicare will transfer up to two years of the individual’s claims data into the individual’s PHR. Beneficiaries can elect to allow family members and healthcare providers to have access to their PHRs.
