Medical Records: Practicalities and Principles of Patient Possession

Journal of Medical Ethics. 1991 Sep; 17(3): 138-143.
This review of issues and research is in two parts: 1) practical problems surrounding patient-held records and 2) ethical arguments for and against patient-held records. We argue that research on patient-held records indicates that there are no substantial practical drawbacks and considerable ethical benefits to be derived from giving patients custody of their medical records.
