Making Patient Engagement Useful

“BIDMC has been offering Personal Health Records since 1999 and we’ve learned that patient information must be organized appropriately and wrapped in patient education materials so that the data is transformed into knowledge, and is actionable.
I recently visited my PCP for an annual physical. Ok, to be honest it was my first visit in 4 years since as a physician I am uniquely poor at seeking regular preventative/wellness care. My PCP ordered a Urinalysis, a metabolic panel, lipids, and a CBC from Quest. Quest has a very cool feature that enables patients to upload their lab results into Microsoft Healthvault and Google Health.”
