In Sweden, and internationally, there is an ongoing debate about the effects of national implementations of Patient Accessible Electronic Health Records (PAEHRs). The purpose of this paper was to describe the current situation in Sweden and compare this with the expectations on reasonable waiting time for information access of users of the Swedish PAEHR. Data were collected from publicly available resources regarding current implementation in the 21 county councils, contrasted with patient experiences, gathered from a national online survey. The results indicate that patients have high expectations on immediate access to information, while this varies greatly in implementation across Sweden.
