Docs limit patient EMR access

March 29, 2013 in Medical Technology

Even as policmakers are pushing patient engagement, a new survey signals doctors may not be ready to relinquish control of their patients’ medical record.

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.

The findings come from a recent Harris Interactive survey conducted on behalf of global consulting and technology services firm Accenture.
