“MORE CORPORATE SPENDING TO LIMIT PATIENT'S RIGHTS
VERBATIM QUOTE FROM:
May 10, 2012 02:44 PM
(Background: the prevailing customary time allowed for hospitals to release electronic patient records is 36 hours)
"An organization aimed at promoting collaboration among patients, medical professionals, families, and other caregivers is fuming about an American Hospital Association (AHA) recommendation that hospitals be given THIRTY DAYS to release data in electronic health records (EHRs) after patients request access."
"Perhaps the most important time for patients and their chosen caregivers to have access to their electronic medical record is during a hospitalization and in the week following discharge--particularly access to information involving the medications. The health toll of medication errors during and shortly after hospitalization is considerable," Dr. Alan Greene, past president of the Society for Participatory Medicine (SPM), told InformationWeek Healthcare via email."”
