Wave 1 of HEALTH One Global Personal Health Record Research project begins.

Health One Global has begun the Wave 1 pilot of the personal health record research project with Special Olympics and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), funded by the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) (http://www.ahrq.gov/), that we announced in February 2010

AHRQ is the lead Federal agency charged with improving the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care for all Americans. Getting any AHRQ grant is prestigious and our joint proposal was awarded AHRQ's top rating. UIC is one of the world's leading authorities on the health of people with disabilities.

The pilot athletes have secure access to their web-based personal health record through a USB Card uniquely initialised for each athlete. Once authenticated, athletes can access their personal health record which has been specifically tailored to the special needs of the Special Olympics athletes including all their past Special Olympics Healthy Athletes health screening data. The athletes can add and track their personal sports training log, they can add and monitor their Health Promotion and Diet actions, and they can enter their own healthcare / clinical data.

Role based access enables the athletes to grant access to their record to named others such as parents/guardians or relevant healthcare professionals.

The personal health record even gives access to the project Newsletter from Special Olympics and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Look out for the launch of Wave 2 in April 2011.
