More on personal health records

My friend and colleague Dave deBronkart, aka “e-patient Dave,” was interviewed by the Boston Globe about his experience setting up personal health records at Google Health, which I blogged about last week. The gist is that Dave is an early adopter using a very new kind of system. Most hospitals don’t even have sophisticated digital records-keeping systems. The Google Health folks say “the records will improve as more precise coding language is adopted in the coming years.” Meanwhile e-patients like Dave will be pushing for better access to better information.
