    The right to one’s full record, you bet, after all you’re paying for the doctors time and all the tests and if anyone needs access to the info it is you……for free, not going to happen….you need to be pushing for “a copy of one’s record provided at the true not some rediculously inflated rate for providers staff time” plus maybe a small 5% premium to goose their efforts. As we pass to a better online record systems maybe these extra costs disappear to the patient, but will always be included in the providers overhead which will somehow be incorporated into their basic fee structure.

    I’m surprised that this movement doesn’t draw parallels to the existing “right” to see/request one’s credit report data and to control the content there, protect it, dispute errors, etc. The parallels seem obvious and worth drawing since I think folks are rather familiar with that right already.
