So why do patients and carers want health records?

Recommended Posts

Below is an interesting blog from the mum of a cancer patient detailing the horrendous time they had, having to deal with the fragmented information held by various clinicians about their child's health. The 'Cancer mum' makes a very good case for needing a single longitudinal record, and how this would contribute to patient safety.

We often hear about the safety issues with the use of electronic health records, so this is an interesting opposing perspective.
