Could patients record their medical information by themselves, let the doctors add & edit?

By law, we have the right to correct errors in our medicalrecords - but this is a very lengthy process, I doubt many patients are interested in doing it.

Most doctors do not like EMRs anyway, why not let patients write and let doctors add more information and edit patient's input? 

Errors in billing records is another issue, they should be prevented too, do not you think so?

NOTE: I wanted to edit this post, but due to an old bug in Wellsphere software the content was deleted. Thanks to google Cached, I recovered the text, otherwise this question would comprise of only the title. There is no way to either restore or delete the posts anyway. I hope electronic medical records won't be so buggy!
