Seniors reluctant to share PCEHR with all health professionals

“Most senior Australians are willing to grant their GP, specialists, hospital medical staff and emergency workers full access to their electronic health record but are not inclined to do so for other health professionals or carers, according to a study targeting over-65s in regional Australia.
Education is therefore needed about the importance of all health professionals having a full picture of a patient’s health, says a co-author of the paper, which was recently published in the International Journal of Medical Informatics.”
