Personal health records: a randomized trial of effects on elder medication safety.

Chrischilles EA, Hourcade JP, Doucette W, et al. Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association : JAMIA. 2014;21:679-86.

More than half of older adults offered access to personal health records (PHRs) logged on at least once, but frequent use was rare. While users reported improved medication reconciliation and safety behaviors, there was no difference in use of inappropriate medications or adherence measures compared with patients who had no access to PHRs.
