Our teams are made up of doctors, nurses, mental health professionals, patient advocates, social scientists, health services researchers, and communications specialists. We work to spread the adoption of open notes, explore the effects, and to develop new approaches to fully transparent care. Our goal is to make open notes a truly meaningful standard of care.
The OpenNotes Team works closely with a broad variety of patients, families, clinicians, and researchers both in the US and internationally.
