A growing patient movement demanding access to personal digital medical records culminates in a home-made music video called "Give me my DaM (data about me) data!"

MASSDEVICE ON CALL — A growing group of patients is demanding access to personal digital medical information, including health records and data collected from electronic medical devices.

The movement culminated in a home-made music video, published this week by the so-called "American College of Medical Informatimusicology," in which ACMI group members demand their "DaM" data, or "data about me."

It's not the 1st public outcry against barriers that prevent patients from accessing their own medical information, but it may be one of the most engaging.
