Web 2.0 and the implications of the web based personal health record

The UK Department of Health Policy Research and National Institute for Health Research i4i programmes have commissioned the Health Over the Internet Protocol (HOIP) Community Interest Company to undertake a scoping study into Web 2.0 technologies and the implications of the web-based personal health record

The research team will be running a number of workshops and on-line events to encourage contributions and opinions from individuals and groups with experience in this field or similar fields in other industry sectors.

More details can be found at www.hoip.eu/web2health or by emailing web2health@hoip.eu for a summary of the research brief. A brief introductory presentation can be viewed at www.hoip.eu/web2health/briefing.

Our friends at the NHS Faculty of Health Informatics have established good connections with the researchers and promised to keep us informed with developments.
