Our friends at the Lance Armstrong Foundation are conducting a short and easy survey on electronic medical records and they have asked us to get the Army of Women involved. It’s a simple, deidentified survey and it will take you 10 minutes to complete. See below for more information.
A special note from the Lance Armstrong Foundation
The old ways of maintaining medical records are changing. Soon, your records will be stored and updated electronically. But who decides how these records will be used? Where and how are the safest ways to store this information? Can safe, electronic health records improve your health, and the health of the nation as a whole? Decisions are being made now about how electronic health information is stored and shared.
LIVESTRONG is working to ensure that the voice of people affected by cancer is heard and part of the national dialogue. At LIVESTRONG we believe that safe and effective adoption of electronic health records and the electronic exchange of health information has tremendous potential to enhance the quality of care, engage patients in clinical decisions and facilitate research for improved health outcomes. And we also want to know what you think.
Will you take this five-10 minute survey to provide the point of view of people affected by cancer?
We believe that you—people affected by cancer—should be empowered to make well-informed decisions based on facts and data. That’s what patient-centered care should be all about. And that is why this debate is so critical to us, and why as other companies, government agencies and groups are looking at how to best adopt electronic health records—we are want your voice to be heard.
