E-Patient Hugo Campos, whose quest to obtain his medical data has been followed by the media (including this blog) over the past several months, appears in a new interview in SFGate.com. He discusses a common fear of e-patients — that he may be perceived by clinicians as a “difficult patient” just because he wants his data, and to add insult to injury, that this will possibly result in lower quality of care. Participatory medicine is gaining traction, but why do patients still hesitate to ask for medical data?
