OpenNotes is an Invaluable Tool for Caregivers
Linda is a baby boomer. Right now, she’s able to manage her own health care, but as she ages, she expects that her children will become more involved. Because she wants them to be able to make informed decisions on her behalf, she shares her medical information with them using OpenNotes on her hospital’s secure, patient website.
Research shows that many patients are already sharing their notes with care partners and that OpenNotes is becoming an increasingly important tool to help empower patients and caregivers alike.
