If you had the chance to look at what your physician wrote in your medical record about your last visit, would you take advantage of it? Would this make your relationship with your doctor or primary care provider more collaborative? More effective? These are just some of the important questions and issues bearing down on our health care system as an online universe and electronic medical records make shared viewing of what are often referred to as the “doctor’s notes” feasible. What’s contained in the notes and does transparency interfere in any way with their value?
For obvious reasons (I hope), I am a big fan of this project. I signed up to listen in, but I may not be able to make it do to a conflict. If someone else signs up, could they maybe post a summary?
