The Appointment Ends. Now the Patient Is Listening.

Posted by @DanHinmon, Aug 21, 2017

When a patient asks her doctor if she can record the appointment, how should she respond?

According to this article, Dr. James Ryan, a family practitioner in Ludington, Mich., “routinely records appointments, then uploads the audio to a secure web platform so that patients can listen whenever they need to recall what they discussed with him.”

The article also explains the laws that apply to recording sessions with patients, the potential risks, and the benefits.

Thanks to @csjennings for sharing this article with us. @toffenbacher recently authored a blogpost on this subject: Livestream from the exam room: Navigating patient privacy and new technology.
