A method is summarized to improve quality control of the patient history in the medical record, incorporating the patient as a partner to review and correct the information. This method has been implemented at every patient visit to the senior author since 2000, in the infrastructure of usual medical care, using a database. This procedure engenders a more accurate patient history with no effort on the part of the physician, saving time for the physician and improving the quality of the medical record.
