The DOME consortium presented a paper at the conference Medical Informatics Europe (MIE 2016), in conjunction with Health – Exploring Complexity: An Interdisciplinary Systems Approach (HEC 2016), At Munich, Germany this summer.
The paper contrasts the perspectives of physicians and nurses when it comes to putting medical records online for patients to read and discusses how patient empowerment (which is one of the goals of putting medical records online) meets concerns for patients.
The presentation at the conference was made by the very professional Christiane Grünloh and Hanife Rexhepi, and the paper was written by then and other DOME researchers: Rose-Mhaire Åhlfeldt, Gunilla Myreteg, Isto Huvila and me.
The paper addresses the difference in perspective between physicians and patients that we have seen in our studies.
It is a paper well worth reading, and the presentation has excellent slides presenting the difference. Read it!
