Too Long; Didn't Read

Yale researchers found that only 53 percent of hospitals allow patients to receive their complete medical records. This lack of patient access can complicate sharing of sensitive medical records between hospitals and healthcare providers. Having access to medical records can help patients stay informed about their health and medical conditions. It can also help patients keep track of the medications they are taking and any allergies or sensitivities they have. Providing patients with access to their medical records promotes transparency, improves communication between patients and providers, and ultimately leads to better health outcomes.
