Personal health records: A guide for clinicians

03 May 2011 2:26 PM | Anonymous member

Around the world, governments and health care providers are giving patients copies of their medical records. At the same time, amazing new web sites are allowing patients to understand these records and to network with other patients who have the same conditions. This is the personal health records revolution, and it is transforming how medical care is delivered.

However, it means changes for clinicians, and poses challenges in workflow, technology and funding. This book was written for clinicians to understand these challenges and make use of the opportunities for working with their patients.

The author of the book, Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, MD, trained as a physician and programmer at Cambridge, England, and worked as a Staff Scientist at the National Institutes of Health in the USA. He continues his research into personal health records at UCL Medical School and founded the company Patients Know Best to give patients control over their medical records.
