Patterns of response to patient-centered decision support through a personal health record.
The investigators evaluated patients' patterns of responses to notifications regarding guideline-recommended services delivered through a personalized health record (PHR). They found that approximately 61% of participants accessed the PHR or received the care that triggered the message after the first message and 73% after the first two messages. They concluded that, in this low-intensity intervention, participants accessed the PHR and received recommended care.
