Kathleen Finlay interviewed in the Winnipeg Free Press on the high cost of accessing patient medical records.
It’s yet another example of high fees getting between patients and their medical records. (See related story) An informed patient is a safer patient. Charges that make access to hospital charts unaffordable are a barrier to the kind of patient and family involvement that is essential in achieving positive healthcare outcomes.
