Who Owns Your Health Records
Who Owns Your Health Records

Listen
AIR DATE: February 29, 2012

The Obama Administration has been pushing for standardized electronic medical records. It would help doctors provide better and more effective treatments and it would save money because it would prevent repetitive and unnecessary testing. There was even money in the stimulus law to pay medical records to go digital. But there's a problem: most providers do not want to make the electronic records available and particularly do not want them to be available to patients. So what can be done to fix this problem? And who really does own your medical records?
 
GUESTS
Paul C. Tang, M.D, VP and CMIO, Palo Alto Medical Foundation
