In this episode Dr. V talks to Dr. Cait DesRoches, executive director of the OpenNotes Project. OpenNotes is an international movement that’s making health care more transparent by inviting doctors, nurses and therapists to share their notes with their patients. The conversation centers on the Cures Rule, a federal mandate requiring hospitals to share notes with patients. In the realm of advocacy and academics Dr. DesRoches is an absolute powerhouse. Listen as she offers insight on this historical law and what it could mean for doctors, hospitals and, most importantly, patients.
