In this study, allowing hospitalized patients to access their own medical records as a patient engagement strategy did not increase clinician workload or patient worry, but patients did not identify errors on their medication list or better understand discharge. Although enabling patient access to records in real-time did not have adverse effects, it did not appreciably improve patient safety in this modest sample.
