"TETHERED" TO A HEALTH PLAN OR EMPLOYER PHR

The "tethered" PHR, populated with claims data and typically available to the consumer through a secure Web portal, is created by a health plan or an employer Web.

Advantages

The main advantage of the "tethered" PHR is the fact that this type of integrated PHR can provide the patient with much more relevant data. It may also provide the patient with a better back-up system, due to the fact that the integrated PHRs have a larger back-up system (Sprague, 2006).
