The objectives of this group are to:
- Enable patient access to, control of, and addition to personal health records
- Remove barriers to sharing clinical data from disparate EHR systems
- Enhance information portability in support of care in non-clinical settings and scenarios
The intent is to encourage development and deployment of Common architecture/GUI/API facilitating sharing compatible technologies across multiple VA and open-source initiatives, including: MyHealtheVet, Virtual Patient Record, HealtheMe, DoD PHR, IHS PHR
We are especially interested in engaging the ideas and viewpoints of Patients (users), Clinicians, healthcare professionals, and technologists to ensure that the resulting technologies are both useful and user-friendly, in addition to being secure and reliable.
