PHR Market Report Now Available

by John Moore | May 30, 2008

Earlier this week, I had to temporarily suspend transactions that allowed one to purchase the PHR Market Report. This was due to problems with our order management system. Happy to report that all has been resolved and you can now pick up a copy of the report over at our store.

And as a head’s up, we will be putting out a press release on the report early next week. Following is the DRAFT body from that PR.

CAMBRIDGE, MA, June xx, 2008 Industry analyst firm, Chilmark Research, has just released a seminal report on the rapidly changing Personal Health Records (PHR) market. The report is the first of its kind since the recent entry to the PHR market of Internet and software heavyweights, Google and Microsoft. The presence of these two companies will significantly impact the PHR market altering its future direction and affecting all stakeholders. Those impacts are just one of the many subjects extensively covered in this report.

Managing Director and research project leader John Moore comments: “Google and Microsoft have already had an impact on the market simply be raising consumer visibility.” Moore goes on to state: “PHR vendors are now directly experiencing the impact of this visibility with a significant increase in the number of Request for Proposals from the three major markets, employers, providers and health plans. But with this increase in demand, consumer expectations will also rise, putting significant pressure on smaller, less capable PHR vendors and thus putting them at risk.”

Compiled over the last several months through over a 100 interviews with PHR users, enterprise buyers and PHR vendors, the report provides a concise, accurate, relevant and timely review of the PHR market today and its future direction. Particular focus of the report is on the fastest growing sector, Internet-based PHR solutions. The report provides in-depth profiles of 20 leading PHR vendors. These profiles provide a comprehensive overview of a vendor’s market presence, target markets, capabilities of their solution and relative rankings vis-à-vis their leading competitors. This information will prove crucial for any company looking to invest in a PHR solution for their constituents or wishing to understand the market more fully for investment purposes.
