Abstract: Several obstacles prevent the adoption and use of Personal Health Record (PHR) systems, including users’ concerns regarding the privacy and security of their personal health information. The purpose of this study is to examine current PHR systems in order to verify what privacy and security characteristics are deployed in them, in an American context. The strengths and weaknesses of the PHRs identified will be useful for PHR users, healthcare professionals, decision makers and builders. The myPHR website was reviewed since it contains relevant information related to PHRs. For this end, the Privacy Policy of each PHR selected was reviewed in order to extract the main characteristics of privacy and security. The results show that the Privacy Policies of PHR systems do not provide an in-depth description of the security measures that they use. This may be a problem because users might not believe that their data are really protected. The designs of Privacy Policies should be improved to include more detailed information related to security measures, and this may be one of the reasons why users do not trust in PHR systems. (More)
