The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is holding its third video contest of 2012 the “What’s In Your Health Record Video Challenge” which is focused on how paying attention to medical records can improve overall health.
To provide potential contestants with information on the contest, HHS has established the What’s In Your Health Record Video Challenge website which asks viewers if they have ever asked for a copy of their health records and reviewed it? “If so, tell us about it,” says the website, which then urges participation in the video contest.
“Create a short, compelling video (up to 2 minutes in length) sharing how getting access to review your health record and checking the information can help make sure you or your loved ones get the best care,” it says.
The website coaches viewers by telling them that videos should share a personal story or experience illustrating how accessing health records and reviewing the files helped improve care. “Maybe you reviewed your health record and spotted a missing medication, allergy, or test result,” the website says. “Or perhaps you are changing doctors and want your new doctor to have your most recent treatment history,” it adds. Whatever the situation, entries could include such scenarios, the website says.
For providing information on a contest that encourages the creation of videos designed to increase awareness of health and well-being, the What’s In Your Health Record Video Challenge websiteis Government Video’s Website of the Week.
