The news release posted below is a true problem, and a problem with the health care delivery system. Having spent many years working within the field I can testify there is a break down in communication and information sharing that occurs and electronic medical record are not the answer. I have had physicians (both primary care and cardiologist) request we do not send them reports, because they are bogged down with them and won’t read them anyway. Yet from the health care delivery stand point there must be a trail of documentation to support the delivery of services to allow reimbursement for your services. Another concern from the physician standpoint is who is responsible for acting on issues without stepping on the toes of the other health care providers…Yep a turf war.
So how is the best way to ensure your physicians stay actively involved in your heart recovery?
