Thank you Margaret. If you have any particular topics you would like to see, let me know. I'm working on a series of posts on use of electronic health records. The next one, coming soon, is entitled Part 4: The "e-bilities" for electronic health records - Usability, Readability, Accessibility.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Thank you for your comments.

I agree that discussion between Physicians and Patients should be made in a non-medical terminology manner so that it is understandable by the Patient and their family. Patients have the right to understand not only their illness and condition, but also the recommended treatment options and alternatives. That said, they also have the right to refuse.

It is the ability to openly discuss treatments and alternatives between a patient and their provider that can establish meaningful trust.

The knowledge gained by this relationship and exchange of information helps to create the unique plan of care, which can lead to improved health and wellness.
