Personal Health Records: Taking the First Step Toward an Electronic Medical Record, a December 14, 2005 audio

The American Health Information Community, a 17-member group charged with advising the federal government on ways to spur IT
adoption in healthcare, examines the potential for PHRs as one of its first projects. And, the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services also is investigating what role it could play in encouraging PHR adoption.

first step in the process.
