Open Notes: Sharing Clinical Notes with Patients

ON-logo
OpenNotes is a multi-foundation nationwide effort to give patients access to their care team’s written visit notes.

From the company website:

“In 2010, more than 100 primary care doctors from three diverse medical institutions across the United States began sharing notes online with their patients. Each site was part of a 12-month study to explore how sharing doctors’ notes may affect health care.

The evidence from this study suggests that opening up visit notes to patients may make care more efficient, improve communication, and most importantly may help patients become more actively involved with their health and health care.

Now, this evidence has started a movement to enable patients to easily read notes written about their care, and to bring more transparency to medical records. Find participating sites.”
