In this impending digital health era physicians need an easy way to organize in a digital space while also maintaining sovereign independence from centralized hierarchy and control.
Physicians took the Hippocratic Oath, and especially in this ever-advancing digital age, our duty to our patients extends to their protected health information, which includes the information we document in electronic health records.
As physicians our digital documentation and sharing of the patient’s information with third parties needs to end in order to preserve the sanctity and the privacy of the physician patient relationship.
Patients should have control over their health records. It is the physicians who create these records, so it is the physicians who need to build and provide access to the solutions to allow them to do that.
