Abstract

The Personal Health Record market in the U.S. is in a precarious state. Personal Health Records represent an innovative new way for consumers to manage personal medical records and health information, especially as the healthcare market moves towards a patient-centric model, but major Personal Health Record policy deficiencies in the areas of privacy, value appropriation, and interoperability may lead to market failure if not proactively addressed. We analyze and discuss the Personal Health Record market and related polices and suggest that a balanced social contract represents an optimal solution to current market inefficiencies.
