2020: The View from 2006 -- HealthLeadersMedia.com: " Healthcare consumers are Healthcare Kings and Queens. They control their health destinies, choose and afford the best, and rely on themselves, rather than payors and providers. They completely control their sensitive personal health information. Control of that information dictates with whom consumers do business and determines whether electronic and personal health record systems succeed or fail. Health consumers are true gatekeepers of their personal and private information." What a great vision for the future ! Will doctors allow this to happen ? Most are very reluctant to give up control and power !
