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 individualâ€™s claims data into the individualâ€™s PHR. Beneficiaries can elect to allow family members and healthcare providers to have access to their PHRs.
