Episode #1: Dr. C. Martin Harris on the “Google-Cleveland Clinic Story”


In this 14-minute inaugural interview, C. Martin Harris, MD, MBA, FHIMSS, provides a description of the “Google-Cleveland Clinic Story,” a joint program that gives patients control over their electronic health records. This new service, according to Dr. Harris, “provides the opportunity of relieving them (patients) of being their own medical librarians.” Dr. Harris, Chief Information Officer and Chairman, IT Division of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, describes how the program works, and the myriad benefits to both patients and healthcare providers.
