Web 2.0 and the implications of the web based personal health record- UK Department of Health and i4i sponsored research scoping project launched

Rod has kindly allowed me to post into his blog in order to announce a new research project. So I am posting in my role as a Director of the Community Interest Company commsssioned by DH to undertake this research. All contributions are welcome - get in touch using the email link below.

The UK Department of Health Policy Research and NIHR i4i programmes have commissioned the HOIP Community Interest Company to undertake a scoping study into the implications of the web-based personal health record (PHR), the Web 2.0/3.0 technologies, social networks and services that are likely to evolve around it and the resulting research and policy priorities that will enable successful exploitation. The research team will be running a number of workshops at the Department of Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) Future Focus facilities and on-line events using the KTN conferencing facilities together with a series of interviews with representatives of key stakeholders. We would welcome expressions of interest in participating in the workshops and online events. The project is also seeking a wide range of 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 or by emailing for a summary of the research brief. A brief introductory presentation can be viewed at The flyer is also attached



  • This will be an interesting piece of research as we know two of the big players are already out there with Microsoft Vault and Google Health.
