I just came across a few interesting tweets where Howard Luks, Web 2.0 and HC 2.0 savvy Orthopedist fascinated by Social Media and influence on healthcare delivery, posted his 100 patient “poll” on PHR. His first question was how many people were interested in PHR. The second one was how many patients would want their healthcare data online (cloud). Check out the responses.
66/100 not knowing what a PHR is seems high. I would have guessed more like 95/100 wouldn’t know what a PHR was. The split for those interested in their HC information being online seems pretty representative. Over half of the people don’t care or don’t know. So far no PHR vendor has really given us a reason to care.
