Using the Online Library or the Internet, research EHR. Based on your research and understanding, answer the following questions:
- Identify and describe the stakeholders involved in collecting and stakeholders involved with contributing to data collection in the Personal Health Record systems and other consumer informatics tools such as smartphone applications.
- Examine the role of knowledge management components in consumer informatics.
