Examining Information Sharing Preferences

Examining Information Sharing Preferences


Research has shown that older patients often share control over decision-making and personal health information with family members or friends in order to manage medical care issues. However, it can be challenging for clinicians to balance helping patients and their caregivers work collaboratively to manage health information and decision-making while simultaneously respecting the preferences, privacy, and priorities of patients. Studies have also shown that older patients often want control over the privacy of their health information in electronic medical records, but little is known about how this control relates to family dynamics and the use of patient portals.
