California urges people to start gathering, storing medical records on the Web

Sacramento Bee, May 27, 2008

The California Department of Insurance is encouraging consumers in the state to use Web-based personal health records. Despite their availability through insurers and managed-care groups, not enough Californians are using PHRs, according to a report issued by the Insurance Department. The report states that PHRs are efficient and secure, and give consumers a place to better manage their healthcare and deal with insurance claims.
