From Chad Johnson:
In what ways will personal health information exchange change patient engagement through individual ownership of the health record?
You can’t change what you don’t control. Your finances, your car maintenance, your inbox… and your healthcare. When patients take the responsibility to store and to share their medical record with their current and future caregivers then they will feel more in control of the process and more likely to want to improve what the record says about their health. With the growth of Direct Project and apps that allow patient-to-provider communication, this is quickly becoming an option for patients.
But: How many of us want to take control of our health?
