Patients eager to share electronic health records with others, Stanford/VA survey shows

“Despite their distance, the son wants to help his father keep track of his blood sugar and manage his medications. What if the father could share his health information easily and securely online? With the click of a mouse, the son could see blood test results, refill prescriptions or ask to speak with his father’s doctor.
The patients have spoken: Nearly 80 percent of Veterans Affairs patients who participated in a survey would like to share their electronic health information with family members, caregivers and outside providers, according to a new study led by a researcher at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System.”
