I saw this on e-patient Dave the other night and wanted to share. The Department of Health and Human Services is having a contest about medical records – you have to submit a video that is less than 2 minutes. I am sure a lot of us have some good stories to tell! My personal favorite of mine was when I read that I had end stage kidney disease – I didn’t panic because I knew I did not have kidney disease let alone end stage kidney disease.

Since e-patient Dave was the one that took the time to write about this contest, I am just going to link to his article and if you are interested, you can check it out. He said you could win $7,500 but the top prize is only $3k – you don’t need to worry about that one because I plan on winning that one! Second place is $2k. Actually, I would be happy with the $250 one.

Here is the link if you are interested and good luck!

Some of the stories there are actually pretty funny...disturbing...but funny. Just as last year when my hospital records (picked by my insurance company) thought I have "colon cancer". My family freaked out already only to realize I have gastroenteritis.
