Health Data Rights Get Broader National Attention

January 14, 2010

First, I need to applaud CNN for creating a place to focus on the Empowered Patient. And today a special article on a patient’s right to their own data and citing two prominent ePatients – Jen McCabe and Dave deBronkart. “Lack of information kills people” – the article details several anecdotal cases of how patients were injured or died as a result of lack of correct data and medical errors. The patient having their data certainly can add to patient safety – why not have more eyes looking at patient data, especially when it about one’s own body. Looking forward to more features in the Empowered Patient.
