Have you ever asked for a copy of your health record and reviewed it? If so, this is your chance to share the story! You are invited to participate in the “What’s in Your Health Record??” Video Contest. Create a short, compelling video sharing how getting access to review your health record and checking the information can help make sure you or your loved ones get the best care. It’s important that you and your health care providers have the right information to make the best decisions.
Patients and their families have a legal right to request to see and get a copy of their health record from most doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, such as pharmacies and nursing homes, as well as from their health plans. Patients can use that information to better understand their health, to coordinate their care with other health care providers or to help identify possible errors or omissions in their medical records. Patients can get access to their health information through a patient portal, or a personal health record (PHR) or by email.
Your video should share a personal story or experience illustrating how having access to your health record and looking it over helped improve care. Maybe you reviewed your health record and spotted a missing medication, allergy, or test result. Or perhaps you are changing doctors and want your new doctor to have your most recent treatment history.
