Enabling patients to see their doctors' visit notes is a simple idea that has the potential to transform the way patients engage with their health care. Supported by the Pioneer Portfolio, researchers undertook a year-long trial of OpenNotes in which 105 doctors shared their notes with more than 19,000 patients in Boston, rural Pennsylvania, and Seattle. On October 11, 2012, the OpenNotes team held a meeting to discuss the final results of the trial and explore how to make shared visit notes a more routine part of patient care.
