In a recent poll, we asked if PHRs and HIEs, in addition to EHRs, should be included in the proposed health IT certification program. The results clearly demonstrated a preference on behalf of respondents for both PHRs and HIEs to be included as a part of the proposed certification program.
Question: In addition to EHRs, should PHRs and HIEs be included in the proposed health IT certification program?
- Include both PHRs and HIEs – 64%
- Include neither – 27%
- Include PHRs only – 9%
- Include HIEs only – 0%
If you are interested in more information or would like to provide feedback for policy makers on the proposed health IT certification program, you can visit the Department of Health and Human Services’ website or submit a formal comment at www.regulations.gov during designated comment periods.
