Imagine your team has been selected to consult for a community health care outreach organization that cares for homeless and low-income individuals. Because of the transient nature of these individuals, it is nearly impossible for them to maintain a comprehensive and easily accessible medical record. Your organization believes that personal health record (PHR) technology could help their constituents have access to a medical record anywhere and anytime. A local philanthropist has donated $10,000 toward this effort. The organization’s board has evaluated a variety of alternatives for PHR, recognizing the acquisition and operation costs and the limited available budget. They have decided the most cost-effective approach to providing PHRs is by using the PHR developed by the Veterans Affairs (VA) Health System that is available for free to anyone. Your goal is to develop a project management plan for the implementation of a web-based personal health record using the VA Health System’s MyHealth-e-Vet PHR.
