re: Patients Like Online Health Records Access, Study Says
There are some good points outlined in this article regarding patient access to their EHR records. Physicians will certainly need to change the way they communicate with their patients and would need to be much more truthful, knowing that patients will be able to see what they write. By being more direct with information regarding their patientsG«÷ health, they are empowering their patients. I was kind of surprised that there would be derogatory language in the notes, but with physicians being aware that patients can see this, they can avoid using these terms.
