This project will further the spread of the practice of opening physicians' notes to patients to the point where it reaches critical mass and, thus, has sufficient momentum to become a national standard of care. The OpenNotes team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will catalyze this spread by: (1) working with stakeholders to build a movement; (2) supporting early adopters; (3) creating resources that facilitate adoption and implementation; (4) learning from the early implementations; and (5) mentoring young researchers who are studying open notes. Deliverables from the project will include: increased adoption of open notes by leading health care systems and providers in select regions; toolkits that support adoption decisions and implementations; a national conference; and evaluations of open notes implementations at four sites.
