70 mln Americans have access to personal health records

70 mln people have access to basic Personal Health Records. But when Aetna and the Financial Planning Association surveyed more than 2,100 adults 18 and older, 64% said they do not know or are unsure about what a PHR is. Among the group of Americans who are familiar with PHRs, 83% acknowledge that the online record personalizes their experience with their health care provider, but only 11% currently use one to keep track of their medical and health history.
