John Stossel was recently treated for cancer and he had a couple of observations about health IT and men needing to listen to their leading lady when they say "it is time to see a doctor."
Last year I thought I could message my doctor when she announced she now had secure messaging. Silly me, she meant she could send me messages, but I still have to call her. As for filling out forms, tel me about it!
We, patients/consumers/family caregivers, need one place to enter information and then the technology to slice and dice the information for whoever needs it in whatever form they want. I don't care. I just want to fill in my address, phone number and medical history once and then update as needed. Well said, Mr. Stossel!
