Discovery Question (DQ) - use all information resources at your disposal to answer the following:
The Personal Health Record (PHR) and Consumer Health Information Portals (HIPs).

In your DQ response, please address the following questions:
How do PHRs and HIPs compare and contrast with each conceptually, functionally, and in terms of the stakeholder needs/expectations for their value they each create?
What are the major PHR and HIP issues and impacts that consumer health informaticians (CHIs) should prioritize; why?
What strategic professional recommendations would you advocate to address the PHR and HIP priorities that you've identified; why?
Please explain and provide examples to support your analysis.
