Visit Accessible Designs for Personal Health Records!

NCAM's Accessible Designs for Personal Health Records Project announces the launch of resources to guide the health IT industry in creating accessible tools for all health care consumers. The new site highlights the project's research and implementation results.

The project has been researching the health information needs of people with disabilities through interviews and surveys. The research report discusses our findings as well as a broad overview of the state of accessibility of personal health records.

The project's prototype demonstrates how the research findings can be implemented in both a usable and accessible manner, based on real user scenarios, to show the potential of an accessible PHR to meet the needs of all users.
