Personal health information management (PHIM) refers to an individual’s use of various tools (i.e., email, paper, sticky notes, calendars, health portals) to manage their healthcare information (Jones 2008). With advances in technology, it becomes even more imperative that the healthcare community understand the factors that may influence consumers’ intentions to use various PHIM tools to manage his/her healthcare information. The Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) and constructs from the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), and the Computer Anxiety Rating Scale (CARS) guide this investigation into how consumers might use patient health portals to manage their healthcare information.
