Next week on Wednesday DOME researchers will host a 1.5 hours session about patient accessible electronic health records (PAEHR) in Sweden, just before lunch at Vitalis! Many different topics will be covered such as;
- The history behind the DOME consortium and PAEHR in Sweden (“Journalen”)
- Results from studies with medical professionals
- Results from the national patient survey
- Medical records online for children
- Opinions from users of Journalen
- Preliminary results from ongoing studies
I have discussed our national patient survey in earlier blog posts and during the second DOME presentation slot Hanife Rexhepi and I will present some concrete results from that study! We will, among other things, present basic demographic data, usage behavior and attitudes towards different aspects of Journalen. Later on during the spring there will also be a journal manuscript submitted, but the presentation at Vitalis will be the first occasion where results from the study are presented in public!
Åsa Cajander (coordinator of the DOME consortium) and Isabella Scandurra will present some history and a few results from studies with medical professionals and Rose-Mharie Åhlfeldt will lead the “sneak peak” session where a few new projects within DOME and some preliminary results from ongoing studies are discussed.
Apart from researchers within DOME, a few people from Inera (the company behind Journalen) – Maria Pettersson and Jenny Juremalm – and Martin Price from Uppsala county council will present results on medical records online for children and opinions from users.
I think this will be a great opportunity for us to reach out with our results and also a great opportunity for others to learn about DOME and the status of and attitudes towards patient accessible electronic health records in Sweden. I hope that many will show up and listen to us!
