#‎NoMUwithoutMe‬ ... What does that mean? you may ask. MU, or Meaningful Use, is what we're supposed to make of electronic health records. Health care providers get Recovery Act dollars from the federales if they make "meaningful use" of "certified" electronic health records. One of the measures of Meaningful Use is how many patients in a practice "view, download or transmit" their own health records. The current rule: 5% of patients. A proposed rule released in the past month would cut that figure to One Patient. Not one percent of patients - One Patient. We all have a right to our medical records, and getting them and making sure doc A at hospital X can get records from doc B at clinic Y is critical. Often the only way to get from here to there is via the patient. It seems to me that health care providers should make it easy to get copies of records. especially if they're getting federal incentive dollars for having implemented electronic health records. So please join a boatload of interested parties - organizations and individuals - in signing on to the the comment letter of the National Partnership for Women & Families -- read it at this link, and click at the bottom to sign your name via email ... and please tell your friends and neighbors.  If you'd like a little more background, see http://j.mp/1QKu2SP (a post on e-patients.net)

Would love your ideas and feedback on this question. I'm writing a blog post on the topic of patient-doctor communication, specifically for patients that have an existing relationship with a doctor, but now they want to become more involved in their own healthcare. The questions are:

What questions to ask your doctor about how you can become more involved in your health?

What NOT to say/do when wanting to become more involved in your own healthcare?

Conversation starters for the above...  (ie how can a patient start this conversation with their doctor, do they need to schedule a separate appointment for it?)

(I'd LOVE input from patients, nurses, caregivers AND doctors!)

Good article on repurposing old blog content.
Are your old blog posts dragging your blog down? It might be time to rework them or take even more drastic measures: delete the posts entirely.

Depression common among caregivers. Found a handy online stress quiz for caregivers.

Wouldn’t you want to know if your doctor was a paid spokesman for a drug company? Or held personal beliefs incompatible with the treatment you want? Right now, in the US at least, your doctor simply doesn’t have to tell you about that. And when physician Leana Wen asked her fellow doctors to open up, the reaction she got was … unsettling.
