  Policymakers have a fiduciary duty to this population, and the country’s policy framework is established to benefit patients. Patients receive care services from providers and are the beneficiary customers of the payors. Patients also may want to access information about their care via an electronic device (e.g., personal computer, mobile phone).Author: Leveraging interoperability standards to link patient, provider, payor, policymaker data.   Legal, ethical, and psychological arguments indicate that patients need to receive information about their health situations before their care decisions are made. Patient decision aids (PtDAs) are designed to help patients make decisions; therefore, they should provide information that results in patients understanding their health by:

  A VIS or Vaccine Information Statement is a document, produced by CDC, that informs vaccine recipients – or their parents or legal representatives – about the benefits and risks of a vaccine they are receiving.) to give the appropriate VIS to the patient (or parent or legal representative) prior to every dose of specific vaccines.   Providing patients with complete and current information helps create an atmosphere of trust, enhances the doctor-patient relationship and empowers patients to participate in .

  All of this can improve patient safety by providing the necessary information to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Enhances Data Sharing Among Providers. EHR systems also allow for more seamless sharing of patient data between healthcare providers so that everyone has access to the same information in real time. Health communication and health information technology (IT) are central to health care, public health, and the way our society views health. These processes make up the ways and the context in which professionals and the public search for, understand, and use health information, significantly impacting their health decisions and actions.
