Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are quickly becoming the standard by which medical and care coordination information is captured and stored. Implementing EHRs on the organizational level have resulted in demonstrable improvements in patient specific and program level quality management, public health reporting, and important clinical outcomes measurement. Personal Health Records (PHRs) and access to EHRs via Patient Portals are increasingly recognized as critical components central to the national HIT agenda as a recognized and underutilized strategy to improve the quality of care and engender consumer self-efficacy. This Workshop will 1) Describe existing PHR and Patient Portal models and their impact on Clinical Care, Quality Management and Data Reporting, 2) Alert Grantees to opportunities to engage with local and regional efforts underway to promote consumer access, data sharing, and quality reporting, and 3) Promote awareness and adoption of HIT tools intended to foster data quality management.

Learning Objectives:

  • Workshop participants will learn the potential benefits of developing consumer access to their medical records, specifically with regard to improved clinical care, data quality management, and data reporting.
  • Workshop participants will learn about existing EHR consumer access resources, including local Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) activities designed to foster data sharing, consumer access, and public health reporting.
  • Workshop participants will become knowledgeable about HIT tools and Federal HIT policy initiatives designed to foster interagency information sharing, improve data quality, and consumer involvement via HIT.
