Proposed MU Rules Draw Strong Reaction

It seems to me that patient access to records should be via an HIE. The HIE should be able to aggregate records from all providers and provide a single consistent point of access for the patient. Also, if a large percentage of patients are going to access their records on-line how many people will we need to hire to man a help desk to reset credentials, provide help, and I can only imaging the number of questions in interpreting the results. Now, this may be a good thing for some patients, but it is going to be expensive and will certainly expose many patients PHI to the wrong parties.
