Is the Future of Patient-Managed Health Records Now a Thing of the Past?

RIP Google Health and Powermeter (see here); and MSFT Hohm at the same time. In the immortal words of Half Man Half Biscuit "A million housewives every day pick up a tin of beans and say, 'what an amazing example of synchronisation'".

And so as they ask[ed *] over at BioPoliticalTimes, are we done with patient managed records?

I think the thing here is not to loose track of the fact that patient access to records rather than holding them is a key service we want to see...
