The most widely used example of patient-centered technology presently in use is helping researchers gain insight into adoption facilitators and barriers that could supply guidance for the next-generation of personal health records systems.
Understanding how first-time users interact with their personal health records will enable us to design and implement future-generation systems that will serve the needs of patients and those with whom they wish to share health information, including doctors and other trusted parties. Ultimately it will help us, as physicians, provide better care for our patients.”
