Review on Electronic Medical RecordsAccording to a study by Accenture, 68 percent of U.S. doctors do not want patients to have full access to their electronic health records, even though secure access through an Internet portal is technically very feasible. The restrictions they want vary, from not wanting patients to edit their recordssay, to add the results of a blood test performed out-of-networkto a minority (4 percent) who do not want patients to see their records in digital form at all.
Doctors preference for these restrictions compromises one of the most attractive things about electronic records: the ability for patients to be able to access their complete medical record in an instant, which could be vital in a medical emergency if they are being treated by doctor who otherwise wouldnt know their history.
