OpenNotes ( is 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. The object of this webinar is to acquaint attendees with the benefits of OpenNotes. OpenNotes refers to the notes healthcare professionals include in medical records to describe their interaction with patients. In 2010 hospital systems in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Washington joined in an exploratory study allowing 20,000 patients to read their clinical notes. The results of the study were positive: physicians reported little change in workload, and patients overwhelmingly embraced the practice. Since then, multiple hospital systems all over the country have joined the OpenNotes movement and experienced improved practitioner/patient relations, greater patient empowerment and compliance with treatment regiments, and a reduction in errors in medical records. The regulatory community will find this webinar enlightening, providing an example of how regulatory boards can help fulfill their educational mission—education of both healthcare providers and the public to improve safety and quality.
