Évaluation de la connaissance des patients sur leurs données médicales personnelles : impact sur le temps de travail

Abstract : Introduction: Patients lack sufficient knowledge about their medical data but these data are required to give optimum medical care. Conciliate medical data is essential but time consuming. We sought to evaluate the impact of patients’ knowledge of their medical data on the medical time in an emergency unit. Methods: This prospective study took place in the emergency unit of the Pointe-à-Pitre/Abymes University Hospital in Guadeloupe. The primary objective was to determine how long it takes to conciliate a complete patient file. Secondaries objectives were to evaluate the patients’ knowledge about their own medical data and identify the informative potential of each source consulted. Results: Of the 301 patients that were interrogated, 109 files were successfully completed with an average time of 12 minutes. Patients had 77,4% knowledge of their medical past, 30,1% global knowledge of the their treatments. The most informative source was the general practitioner (76,48%) but they remained hard to reach by phone. Conclusion: Medical data conciliation is an essential task but time consuming. Patients’ knowledge about their medical data is poor. The introduction of shared personnal health records could be a solution to this problem.
