re: Most U.S. Doctors Would Limit Patient EHR Access
I agree with the author and your point as well. Patients need to be involved in their healthcare and should be allowed to participate in the record keeping process. But, only to the extent that they are not allowed to change data coming into the chart by the doctor, staff, lab, specialist, etc. If they see something that is incorrect, they should be allowed to report it but not to correct it themselves.
If those issues can be settled, it opens up the door to much great participation between the doctor and patient in building a more accurate and complete medical history on the patient and efficacy of treatment.
