    Interesting article and study. Will definitely share it... Finally, we found a line!

    Did the study consider whether a patient‘s viewpoint would vary depending upon who owned the electronic medical record? For example, if a patient had ownership of their electronic medical record, and the patient chose with whom to share the information, and could revoke the right to view or edit information, does that change their confidence level? What if the patients were offered monetary incentives like rebates for using electronic medical monitoring or could "sell" their data to be used in studies (is it not currently already a commodity)? Is it possible that patients skepticism lies with the opacity of how medical providers currently use information? Since when have patients been rewarded for giving their doctors more information?
