I’m taking Electronic Records Management this semester, and in a wonderful synergy with my position at the Taubman Health Sciences Library, discussion of where electronic health records (EHRs, or EMRs if you prefer) fit into records management is a frequent topic.
Accenture recently released the results of a survey of 3,700 physicians across eight countries – they were queried about what level of access patients should have over their own EHRs. Most seemed to fall somewhere in the middle, with partial access garnering 65% of the responses. Full access was the runner up with 31% of physician votes. And the 4% who voted for no access must be fans of that one Seinfeld episode.
