Record Access

The Role of Patient Portals in the Future of Healthcare

Nicole Spector, HealthTechZone

“As we get increasingly digital and Internet-savvy, more and more healthcare patient portals are cropping up, and thus, medical patients now have greater access to their health information than ever before. Patients can also be hands-on in supplying, questioning and correcting their data, which can help improve the accuracy of the data.

Candace Y.A. Montague

“If you visit a doctor’s office or hospital and you usually see stacks of manila folders with labels on them and loads of paper inside. When a doctor wants to research more about a patient, it can take a while to sort through the file and decipher handwritten notes.

Why don’t first responders have instant access to EHRs?

Jennifer Bresnick, EHR Intelligence

“Unfortunately, it often takes tragedies like this week’s Boston bombing to raise debate about how to respond to emergencies where an injured patient’s life may hinge on how many seconds it takes for them to receive medical care. In a trauma situation where a patient may be experiencing terror and confusion, or may be unconscious, paramedics can’t rely on them to remember what medications they’re allergic to.

Patient EMR Access May Be The Biggest Cultural Shift

Anne Zieger, Hospital EMR and EHR

“As most readers probably know, U.S. doctors are skittish about giving patients full access to their medical records. That fact was underscored by a recent Accenture study, which concluded that 65 percent of doctors think patients should only have limited access, and 4 percent feel patients should have no access.

Patient access to complex chronic disease records on the Internet

Bartlett C et al, BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, 12(1)

Background
Access to medical records on the Internet has been reported to be acceptable and popular with patients, although most published evaluations have been of primary care or office-based practice. We tested the feasibility and acceptability of making unscreened results and data from a complex chronic disease pathway (renal medicine) available to patients over the Internet in a project involving more than half of renal units in the UK.

Methods
Content and presentation of the Renal PatientView (RPV) system was developed with patient groups. It was designed to receive information from multiple local information systems and to require minimal extra work in units. After piloting in 4 centres in 2005 it was made available more widely. Opinions were sought from both patients who enrolled and from those who did not in a paper survey, and from staff in an electronic survey. Anonymous data on enrolments and usage were extracted from the webserver.

Online Health Records for Patients Will Still Require Oversight

Jan Cottingham, Arkansas Business

“The incident helps illustrate a basic tenet about the move in the U.S. toward electronic health records: The patient is ultimately responsible for the accuracy and completeness of his health records. An analogy may be helpful here: Being able to pay your credit card online may ease the chore, but you’re still responsible for ensuring your account is credited.

OBJECTIVE:

Removing the red tape from patient records

Jim Golden, Forbes

“Consumers have become accustomed to using smart phones for self-managing many aspects of their daily lives but still lack access to their own healthcare data. While many doctors capture volumes of patient data in their own repositories, it’s rare that patients ever have access to this information, separating them from their personal data.

EHR Survey: Most Docs Say Full Patient Access Not a Good Idea

Healthcare Innovation Center

“A new Accenture survey shows most U.S.-based doctors (82 percent) want patients to actively participate in their own healthcare by updating their electronic health records. However, only a third of physicians surveyed (31 percent) believe their patients should have access to their full health record. These findings were consistent among 3,700 doctors surveyed by Accenture in eight countries: Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Singapore, Spain and the United States.

Physicians would like patients to update their EHR, but full access? Notsomuch

Stephanie Baum, MedCity News

“More than half of physicians say allowing patients to update their electronic health records, through say, a patient portal, would be a good way to get consumers more engaged in their healthcare, which could help crack that great big $289 billion problem of adherence. And yet, only 31 percent say they should have full access to it and 20 percent of the 3,700 physicians surveyed across eight countries actually provide online access to their patient chart or medical summary. Why?

Internet, un espacio cada vez más necesario para la Sanidad

David Rodríguez Carenas, Diario Médico

“Aunque con excepciones que confirman la regla, como el poco seguimiento del piloto de cita previa on-line en Cantabria, es un hecho que Sanidad e internet van cada vez más unidos. O, más bien, que la Sanidad ya no se concibe como tal sin la presencia de la red. Así demuestra cada estudio que ha analizado el uso de internet para buscar información relativa a la salud. Si en 2003 un 28,7 por ciento de los internautas usaron la red con ese propósito, en 2005 la proporción ascendió al 29,7 por ciento, según datos de Red. es, entidad pública encargada de consolidar el desarrollo de la sociedad de la información en España.
