OpenNotes Findings Released
The findings of the OpenNotes study were published today in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
Our study found that patients with access to notes written by their doctors feel more in control of their health and report a better understanding of their medical issues, improved recall of their care plan and being more likely to take their medications as prescribed.
Doctors participating in the OpenNotes trial at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Geisinger Health System in Danville, PA and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle reported that fears they had about an additional time burden and offending or worrying patients did not materialize, and many doctors reported enhanced trust, transparency, communication and shared decision-making with their patients.
