Rise of the Patient Advocate : Healthcare in the Digital Age
A revolution in patient advocacy is emerging as you now have the ability to view and amend what is documented in your medical records. Rise of the Patient Advocate - Healthcare in the Digital Age is a guidebook designed to help you navigate your patient portal and engage with your doctor's electronic health record. Drs. Michael and Margaret Warner use stories to exemplify why you should review your record before and after every medical encounter. They also support the use of a Universal Pre-History, which allows you to "co-author" the History section of your health record. Drs. Warner recognize newfound rights that were buried in federal laws from the 1990's, now emerging with the advent of electronic health records. The book guides you in exercising these rights so that you can be your own patient advocate. With a view to satisfaction, quality and cost, Warner's offer practical solutions to the inefficiencies in our present healthcare system. The heart of the message supports a strong patient-provider relationship with patients actively participating in decision-making. This book is a must read for everyone who seeks to be heard and understood by the healthcare system.
