But I need my medical records NOW....
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!
We are legally entitled to our medical records but are faced with delays caused by having to sign forms and then waiting for our family physicians to forward vital medical information.
Delays cause frustration and damages good care.
Mandating patient portals of access to electronic medical records in family practices would allow 24/7 access to health information.
Providing patients with private user names and passwords would:
- Engage patients and their caregivers to be proactive in their care
- Increase patient satisfaction
- Improve clinical outcomes
- Lower overall costs
