EHRs give patients more control [VIDEO]

Many patients have embraced the concept of electronic health records, and it’s easy to see why. Patients want to feel empowered – yet up until now they’ve had very little control over their healthcare.

The Motley Fool pointed out that an estimated 17 percent of a person’s lifetime income is spent on healthcare – so it makes sense they’d want as much control as possible over the care they receive, and EHRs can help them get that.

Thanks to EHR patient portals, patients have more control than ever before. They can clearly see their health records and have a full understanding of what treatments they’re receiving, and why. EHRs help take the secrecy out of healthcare, adding greater transparency and letting patients take ownership over their health.
