OpenNotes: How the Power of Knowing Can Change Health Care

  • May 2, 2017

In this 2017 NEJM Catalyst article, the pioneers of OpenNotes report that due to the project, “More than 11 million patients in the United States now have easy access to their physician’s notes through what has become a standard-of-care ‘movement.’”


Launched in 2010, OpenNotes was designed to improve patient engagement. CRICO has been an early and continued supporter of OpenNotes and has aided in the expansion of the project. “Relatively simple and scalable, OpenNotes is sending a powerful message about how organizational transparency and inclusivity can empower patients and doctors and potentially improve the delivery of care,” wrote the article’s authors. Also the project leaders share key lessons learned over the years and look ahead to how OpenNotes may continue to change the health care landscape.
