WHAT THEY DO:
OpenNotes is an international movement advocating fundamental change in the way visit notes are managed. They’re committed to spreading the availability of open visit notes and studying the effects.
WHY THEY DO IT:
They believe that providing ready access to notes can empower patients, families, and caregivers to feel more in control of their healthcare decisions, and improve the quality and safety of care.
WHY WE'RE INVOLVED:
More than 20 million patients in the USA now have access to their notes, and at least 20 health systems plan to join the OpenNotes movement this year.
