Health Information Technology
We want to hear from you. Please share your story.
Nothing is more powerful than the real-life stories of patients in demonstrating what works in our health care system, and where it fails us. And there’s nothing like a compelling story to get policy makers and activists fired up about their work.
So if you have a story to tell about how electronic medical records and other kinds of health IT would have improved your care (or if they already have!), we want to hear it.
- Have you had unnecessary or duplicative tests done because your doctor didn’t have access to your medical records?
- Have you had conflicting prescription medications because your doctor couldn’t check previous prescriptions?
- As a patient or caregiver, have you had trouble keeping track of the medical records from the different specialists you regularly visit, or had trouble coordinating your care amongst several doctors?
- Or, have you noticed an improvement in your care because your provider uses electronic medical records?
If so, please take a moment to share your personal story and help support this crucial work!
