+1 visibility into growth and engagement (within reason). Exciting to see more people jumping at the opportunities in personal health but current PHRs have (as best anyone can reason) notoriously low engagement rates and it'd be nice to hear how people are successfully combating that.

Thanks for the comment Jay. Patient engagement remains the big challenge here for all of us! Happy to share more on the phone 609-651-4826. How we become better health care consumers is changing and we hope that companies like Zweena are helping individuals to be more proactive.

re: Personal Health Records Get Social
ZweenaHealth seems to be doing a good job at bridging the gap between patient information and accessibility online by automating/scanning the patient records on behalf of the patients and realizing that patients are unlikely to do that themselves. I would love to see some more statistics on how often that data is actually accessed by patients though and what kind of success stories come from having such information online.
