We are a new organization based on newfound Patient Advocacy rights. We support three actions for all patients. They include:
1. We should be able to view our medical records prior to a medical encounter.
2. We should be able to view our medical records after a medical encounter.
3. We should have an opportunity to "co-author" what is documented in the History section of our medical record.
Because these rights are based on federal law, it is up to all medical providers and everyone in the healthcare profession, to respect and accommodate these rights.
We recommend a guidebook and encourage you to be your own best patient advocate. While the guidebook sets the stage, you will find application to improve your healthcare experience. We believe that a strong patient-provider relationship will deliver high satisfaction and high quality that is cost effective.
