patients allowed to look at notes written by their doctors ... feel more in control of their health.

researchers at beth deaconess medical center led a study that gave over 13-thousand patients open access to their primary care doctors' notes.

more than three-quarters of patients said they felt more in control of their care, understood their medical issues better -- and were more likely to take their medications as prescribed.

although many doctors feared this practice would increase their workload -- most said sharing notes had minimal impact on their time.
