Easily Share Your Presbyterian Medical Records With Your Doctors
Electronic health records are supposed to make accessing easier. Healthcare is supposed to be more consistent and safer for patients because their records should be accessible across multiple healthcare systems. Medical records are sometimes harder to access than ever before. Every time you visit your doctor, they put a note in your medical record. Your record contains a lot of information about you and your health, which includes your examinations, tests, labs, x-rays, prescribed medications, and recommended treatment plans.
Medical care has become very specialized. Most people getting healthcare have multiple healthcare providers in more than one unrelated facility, compromising the ability of their provider to access the patient's medical records. This problem can significantly impact safe patient care.
Benefits of Having Full Access to Your Medical Records From Presbyterian
A large medical system, Presbyterian has multiple healthcare facilities. Thousands of patients get healthcare at their facilities every year. That's a lot of documenting every step of treatment for each of these patients.
One way to ensure your doctors have access to your complete, up-to-date medical record is to have a complete copy of your own. There are some benefits to maintaining a copy:
- You will know the results of all of your tests.
- Be able to discuss your record with current and future providers.
- You can submit missing tests or medication changes.
- You can share copies with new providers.
- Delays transferring information are eliminated.
Your medical records are yours. They do not belong to the healthcare providers maintaining them. You have a right to access them and have a copy of them.
Another good reason to keep a copy of your records is that medical records can get lost or destroyed, even electronic ones. They are also not kept forever in many cases. Retention periods are determined by state law and facility policy. They could be destroyed in as little as 7-10 years after the last patient contact. It's important to get a copy of your medical records before they are destroyed. DoNotPay will help.
