OpenNotes video series
OpenNotes is working to make sharing visit notes with patients a routine part of care. Patients can check what was discussed and what's planned. This can provide a useful reminder and also enables the option to share this information with their families (if they choose).
Research shows that when patients have access to their doctors' notes, they feel more in control of their health care, better understand their medical issues and report they are more likely to take their medications as prescribed.
