Abstract The MIDHT project continues to research health information technologies (HIT) within the Conemaugh Health System, located in rural Southwestern Pennsylvania. Core technologies under investigation include electronic health records (EHR), picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and personal health records (PHR). In summary, studies related to EHR and PACS have both been completed and closed with both the Conemaugh and U.S. Army Institutional Review Boards (IRB). Study experience related to PHRs has resulted in minimal interest and usage by subjects and providers alike. Our findings align with national attitudes of said technology. As the nation focuses on 'meaningful use' of EHR systems, wide-spread adoption of PHRs may be 5-10 years away from reality.
