This paper describes and discusses the design and usage of a shareable consumer health record system to investigate whether these systems can assist in the management of chronic diseases. This web-based system that can be used both by care providers and patients contains medical and patient information, provides access to websites that contain quality information, provides guideline-based advice, allows discussion between patients and allows us to interrogate both patients and care providers on a regular basis in order to get a good impression of the utility of such a consumer record for both chronic patients and the physicians and nurses. A health record system that was developed for the area of Diabetes is presented as an example.
