More Access Is Necessary

A new survey shows that many Americans want more to access to their health care files because they feel that this would help cut down on the errors and improve overall health care quality by giving them an e-copy. However they are afraid that this could lead to fraud if this file gets into the wrong hands.

But eight in 10 Americans are very concerned about identity theft or fraud and the possibility of their data being used by marketers without their permission – with three-quarters of those surveyed saying the government has a role in establishing privacy and confidentiality protections for electronic health information.
