#‎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)

A huge problem in our society that contributes to the divide between the haves and have-nots:
"In 2009, according to the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, dental issues caused about 936,000 emergency-room visits and almost 13,000 inpatient hospital stays. Many of these patients had low incomes and dental coverage that restricted care to emergencies or wasn’t accepted by accessible dentists."
If you have a mouthful of teeth shaped by a childhood in poverty, don’t go knocking on the door of American privilege

“Elderly patients, when they come to surgery, often are not afraid of dying. They want to know if they’ll return to the same functional level — mental as well as physical — as before surgery,” Sieber says. “That’s what their real worries are.”

Stay tuned for more on: (1) How to tell the government that proposed rules on patient engagement need to be more patient-friendly and (2) One free tool (the back end is powered by a client of mine) that makes it easier for everyone to get their records - and in a format that is easily digested, used and shared. Records from multiple providers can be merged and made available to all. I think of it as a patient-centered health information exchange layer. We'll be promoting the idea of asking health care providers for records and giving them an easy way to upload them to a secure platform in a patient-controlled account in part by asking folks to share stories about their experiences - good and bad - related to asking for medical records, getting them/not getting them easily and how that affected care/outcome. Shared stories will be posted on a blog of patient stories. If you want to share your story (or want more details) please contact me via email, twitter, carrier pigeon, etc. 500-800 word pieces would be ideal. #patient #HIE #HealthIT #NoMUwithoutMe

Bottom line: When you go to the doctor, any doctor, always ask for your records.

CMS proposes gutting the criteria to demonstrate that patients are "meaningfully using" their healthcare record data. I say: CMS, if we (patients) burn, you burn with us.

Physicians are being forced to make hard choices, and one of these sacrifices often comes at the expense of the patient story. And when you lose that story.

Your patient engagement efforts probably suck. Here's why, and what has to happen to change that paradigm: let patients help.

"Somewhere between 15 and more than 50 percent of older patients develop such severe confusion after major surgery – and although it is a common problem, care for delirium is spotty at best."
Delirium after surgery is fairly common among elderly patients. Here are a few tips to help avoid it.
