Docs limit patient EMR access

EHR

According to Accenture, a global consulting and technology services firm, a recent Harris Interactive survey reveals that only a third of US doctors think patients should have full access to their electronic health records.

Eighty-two percent of U.S. physicians responding to a recent survey indicated they want patients to actively participate in their own healthcare by updating their electronic health records. However, only 31 percent said they believed a patient should have full access to his or her own record, with 65 percent indicating patients should have limited access and 4 percent saying they should have no access.
