I did not say that patients are dying to manage their records. In most of the world with exception to 4-5 countries, patient manage their own records. It helps that records are on paper and everyone knows how to keep a folder full of papers. Healthcare apps make 40% of downloaded apps in Brazil.
If we keep making patient records so difficult to manage that one needs a Health-IT degree or MD then we failed from the start. I did mention here that we need records easy enough that my grandma should be able to manage. You remember how many smartphone and smartphone OS were there in the market prior to iPhone launch. We need to learn few things from Apple here.
I am the first one to accept that adoption of health records has been difficult and any company which solves this problem will own the market. Patients won't manage records unless they get some additional benefit from managing the records.
