As the healthcare market moves toward an era of patient engagement, population health and patient advocates, practitioners need a practical how-to guide that helps facilitate their teaching with patients and family members on not just writing down or accumulating a personal health record, but an interactive process that converts the personal health information into a data-driven decision-making process. Through numerous forms, templates and real life examples, the author provides the tools to help patients gather critical health information while minimizing their exposure to medical and financial errors.
