FACTS AND STATS

More than two-thirds of U.S. residents said they believe that having access to health and medical information online would give consumers more control, according to a new survey conducted for the Markle Foundation by Lake Research Partners and American Viewpoint.

Twenty-seven percent of U.S. residents said they feel that they currently have too little control over making healthcare decisions, according to the survey.

Ninety percent of respondents said that if they had online access to their health information, tracking their symptoms or health changes over a secure network would be very important. In addition, 82% of parents said they would be interested in tracking their children's health records and services, such as immunization dates, online, according to the survey.

Eight out of 10 respondents said they would like to manage the financial aspects of their healthcare, such as tracking insurance payments and out-of-pocket costs, online.
