"The MyMedicalRecords PHR can help reduce medical costs and improve patient care today and does not require consumers to wait for technology costing billions of dollars before they can start benefiting from a PHR for their family."

"Any product or service that can help the public better manage their family's health status should be considered part of an overall plan created by the government," said Mr. Gephardt. "It is essential that the private and public sectors create solutions to give Americans both access to affordable, quality healthcare, and at the same time encourage them to make informed choices. A PHR that people can easily connect with, gives them immediate access to their medical records so that it becomes an integral part of their wellness, and ensures their personal privacy, has to be considered a life tool that by its use promotes healthy behavior."

Mr. Gephardt served as Congressman from Missouri in the United States House of Representatives for 28 years, from 1976 to 2004. During that time, he was elected to serve as House Democratic Leader for more than 14 years, as House Majority Leader from 1989 to 1995 and House Minority Leader from 1995 to 2003. He was a colleague in the House to 49 currently serving U.S. Senators and members of the Executive Branch, and is universally recognized as a national leader on healthcare, trade and tax fairness and as an advocate for issues of economic fairness and opportunity for American families. He is currently President and CEO of the Washington-based Gephardt Group. In addition, as a member of America's Agenda, he is actively involved in helping to identify solutions to address the healthcare crisis in the United States. The organization's healthcare reform advocacy arm, America's Agenda: He
