Survey: Patients want more open medical records

“A striking majority of patients would like to share information in their electronic records and see what their physicians are saying about them, according to a pair of studies published in the Dec. 20 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.
The first survey, “Patient Interest in Sharing Personal Health Record Information,” found that 79 percent of the 18,000 users of My HealtheVet–the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) electronic personal health record (PHR) system–would like to share the information in their personal health record with someone outside of the VA system.”
