OpenNotes

CAC has entered into a collaboration with OpenNotes, a growing movement that promotes the sharing of healthcare practitioners’ clinical notes with their patients.  OpenNotes does not sell any products but rather is a foundation-supported initiative headquartered in Boston. The objective of this collaboration is to acquaint CAC’s audiences with the benefits of OpenNotes and thereby inspire consumers to ask their doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to adopt open notes and inspire healthcare institutions and practitioners to support the practice.  In furtherance of this objective we are introducing a new regular section in CAC News & Views on OpenNotes.
