re: Contest Targets Consumer Interest In Electronic Health Records
This is a very interesting contest Neil, thanks for making the community aware of it. It seems like the more effort that is put into raising awareness of a patient's responsibility in the patient care process, the greater the chances that patients will actually become involved in researching, monitoring, and proactively helping themselves. Certainly the move towards electronic health records has thrust patient safety and patient care into the spotlight but often it's forgotten that we as patients have a responsibility in this process as well. The healthcare industry can't do it all on their own, it takes marked cooperation between both provider and patient to make the system work efficiently and properly.
