It's only a short time until the insurance companies will access health records to determine what your premiums will be or if they will insure you at all.
An EMR in conjunction with a computerized knowledge system can identify underlying health issues, plot trends, and diagnose sickness to a higher degree than ever before. They save lives. Fact. So what about insurance companies? They'll find out quick enough if you are more burden to them than profitable.
EVERY TIME I GO TO THE HOSPITAL OR DOCTOR'S OFFICE, I AM GIVING A SHEET TO ANSWER THE SAME QUESTIONS I WAS ASKED EARLIER. THIS GOES INTO THEIR DATA BASE. THEY DON'T SEEM TO BE SHARING INFORMATION WITH ONE ANOTHER. I SEE NO ADVANTAGE TO ELECTRONIC RECORDS. SINCE I FILL OUT THE FORMS EVERY TIME, THERE IS NO CONSERVATION OF PAPER.
westcl, the reason you have to fill out the information so often, is because we forget to tell the doctor we moved, or our insurance changed. They have to ask us every time to be sure they have accurate information. If they don't ask everyone, every time, how are they going to know to ask YOU after you have moved? When they don't have accurate information they don't get paid. So, EVERYONE gets to fill out the paperwork, JUST IN CASE.
Funny thing is, I know how important it is to share any changes, and was at a doctor office that didn't give me that paper, they just asked if there were any changes I needed to make and I would just state "no, we're good". When my insurance HAD changed! It didn't occur to me till the bill came, after they had submitted it to the old insurance company and been rejected! Had they handed me that paper to fill out, I would have pulled out my insurance card and they would have received their payment several months sooner.
So I guess that makes me the culprit! It's my fault you have to fill out the horrible paperwork. That's ok you can blame me... I'm a mom, I'm use to taking the blame & carrying the burden.
