Sharing data contained in electronic health records with patients offers a number of benefits, according  to a recent study in the Journal of Medical Internet Research . Patient access to  health data contained in an EHR system has been a hotly debated topic recently so it’s interesting that some researchers, from the Veteran’s Administration and elsewhere, have tried to determine what patients actually experienced when they had such access by studying the My HealthVet EHR access pilot program.

This study, conducted in Newfoundland and Labrador, assessed the level of awareness, perceptions and concerns of healthcare providers, health researchers, data managers and the general public about the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information (PHI) for research purposes. Data collection involved surveys and follow-up focus groups with participants. Results indicate a poor understanding generally with regard to privacy rights and responsibilities. Many professionals are unfamiliar with the legislative environment for PHI, particularly as it pertains to the access and use of PHI for research purposes. Lack of familiarity with basic requirements for patient-based research, coupled with heightened sensitivity to privacy issues owing to various federal and provincial regulatory initiatives, could have a chilling effect on health research. Importantly, our results indicate that the public is much less concerned about the use of their PHI for health research purposes than are professionals who collect, store and share it.
