IX. Avoid Information Overload
Giving patients access to the records relieves the burden on you, as a clinician, to know everything. For example, one study found that a full-time primary care physician on average reviews 930 pieces of chemistry and hematology data and 60 pathology or radiology reports in a given week. By using Patients Know Best, your patients can help you track these data and guide you through the conversations they have with other members of their clinical team. In the past, you struggled to keep up with what the conversations your patient was having with other clinicians. Now, that information is at your fingertips.
