Campos-Castillo quoted in Washington Post

Assistant Professor Celeste Campos-Castillo is quoted in the Washington Post Health and Science article, “So, be honest. Have you lied to your doctor?” UWM Department of Sociology’s Campos-Castillo, a lead author on medical sociology, was asked to comment on the curious discovery that 13% of patients admit to withholding personal information from doctors who use a computerized-record system/electronic health records.

“It was surprising that it would actually have a negative consequence for that doctor-patient interaction,” said lead author Celeste Campos-Castillo of the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. Campos-Castillo suggests that doctors talk to their patients about their computerized-record systems and the security measures that protect those systems.
