Can I Edit My Medical Records?
A question that comes up from time to time is can a patient edit his/her own records. The answer to that question is yes and no. Yes, you can edit records that you enter into your account. No, you cannot edit what the provider enters into your EMR, which flows into your account. For example, if the doctor entered 2,250 for your weight but you weigh 225, then the provider will have to correct that. If you entered your own weight in the account, you always have the option to correct/edit it. Basically, anything entered by your provider has to be edited or corrected by the provider.
