It’s never a good idea to leave a healthcare professional guessing about your medical history. It is estimated that medical errors are responsible for more than 100,000 deaths in the US and 10,000 deaths in Canada every year. At least 30% of them could have been prevented had the medical record been present and available. At RSRS, we strongly support the proactivity of patients with respect to collaborative management of their own healthcare.
Long gone are the days when patients understood little about their medical conditions. With the advent of the Internet and search engines, patients have more information at their fingertips than ever before.
While there is a growing adoption of electronic medical records among healthcare providers, making a patient’s medical record available at the place and time it is most needed is another matter – and the healthcare industry is not there yet. Be proactive. Be engaged.
