For years, the only patient data that made it into the official medical record, which was considered the property of the doctor or hospital, was that collected via history-taking by the physician. Even though the data was collected from the patient, patient-generated or patient-entered data was considered by cinicians to be unreliable. The idea that patient should be allowed to view their medical record was an anathema.As the tyranny of the 15-minute office visit continues to reign supreme and the increasing demands for detailed documentation and the use of “time-saving” EHRs eat into many of those minutes, certain aspects of the patient’s history are at risk of being left untold, particularly the documentation of psychosocial determinants of health. Further, increasingly patients are demanding “give me my damn data” - they want access to their notes and o their medical device data. This panel will examine the role of patients in the collection and use of data to improve health outcomes.
