We've all heard the term HIPAA. How often do we stop to think what it means?

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Your health data is probably secure. However, is it portable? What are you doing to make it portable so that it's available wherever you are? If you haven't signed up for a personal health record (PHR) service, you may want to look into that. Google Health or Microsoft HealthVault?

  1. Actually, User Centric, a Chicago-based user research consulting firm, just did a usability study of Google Health and Microsoft HealthVault! Our research uncovered some interesting findings when consumers compared the two. In fact, this research prompted User Centric to develop guidelines for personal health record applications to facilitate user adoption.
