The battle over EHR patient data
from Medical Economics
Who owns patient data in an electronic health record? It's a simple question with a complex answer. No longer confined to the shelves of a physician’s office, patient data is now shared and used by a myriad of organizations across healthcare: Other physicians and health systems, the EHR vendor, payers, and researchers, not to mention patients themselves. While primary care physicians often originate the medical record, the resulting data are not theirs alone.
