The federal government is pushing to make electronic medical records (EMRs) more easily accessible to patients.

The argument is that having better access to your own electronic health data will help you manage your health care. But the effort is raising questions about patient privacy as well. 

KJZZ’s medical commentator Dr. Joseph Sirven joined The Show to explain the issue surrounding EMRs.

Sirven is a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic.
