How Much Would You Pay for Your Medical Record?

“I recently had to request my medical records from former physicians and have them sent to a new specialist I’m seeing. It is incredibly important for me that my new physician has a comprehensive perspective of my health. I truly believe that if he doesn’t have a complete picture, his decisions may not consider the context of my condition, and my lifestyle and personal will as a part of the solution.
Being in healthcare IT, and inspired all the time by the optimism and the opportunities technology has provided us, I thought that collecting my personal health information would be a fairly simple and straightforward task. Instead, the wide range of service I was provided when simply trying to collect my medical records was quite an eye opening experience.”
