About this Report
This report was developed for a broad audience, including those who work in health information technology policy, accessibility experts and policymakers, health information technology vendors, health information technology developers and researchers, as well as people with disabilities looking to new technologies to help them manage their own health.
The results presented in this report cover a set of three integrated activities:
- Group interviews
- Web-based survey
- Baseline evaluations of existing PHR systems for accessibility, functionality and usability
The Summary section provides a high-level description of the Project's approach and results for all three activities and will be useful to all audiences. Following this, each of the activities is addressed in a dedicated section with additional details on the Project's methods and results; this may be of interest to researchers working on similar studies. The Appendices include a collection of supporting materials and resources.
