I’ll be really glad when the day arrives that this isn’t a bold move. Really, it’s a bold move to give patients access to the charts that they’ve always been able to request and get access to on paper?

I know dozens of companies working on this. Too bad I see so few patients adopting it. Although, if you go to the tweet itself (it may embed the whole conversation above as well), @nursefriendly and @JamieKaufmann have a nice conversation about security and privacy of this information. I’m definitely on @nursefriendly’s side of the conversation. I don’t agree with Jamie that a smart phone app with your health information is necessarily any less secure than an HIS system at a hospital. In fact, the value of hacking the HIS system is much more than hacking an individual record. So, I could easily argue that an HIS has a much higher risk.

I guess we can all dream.
