Medicare will test PHRs in South Carolina
Government Health IT, January 28, 2008
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is set to test a personal health record program for Medicare recipients in South Carolina. The South Carolina project will offer PHRs to 100,000 participants in Medicare's fee-for-service program. Until the South Carolina program, Medicare offered PHRs only to participants in certain plans that were already making PHRs available to their members.
