FACTS AND STATS

A 2006 survey sponsored by the Markle Foundation found that two-thirds of the public is interested in accessing their own personal health information electronically. Eighty percent of those surveyed remain concerned about identify theft, fraud, or the possibility of their information becoming available to marketers. A 2007 national survey commissioned by the Institute of Medicine found that only 1% of respondents would be comfortable having their health and medical information freely used by researchers without their consent.
