    2008 and 2010 Markle surveys are very consistent Majorities of the public say patients should control which parts of their records are transferred Observations By relatively comparable proportions the public and physicians agree that patients should be able to have online tools to view download and share their information Despite this conceptual agreement actual behavior lags most don t communicate online or share information in electronic format The patient engagement requirements of Meaningful Use of health IT are designed to facilitate such electronic information sharing Doctors and Patients Overwhelmingly Agree on Health IT Priorities to Improve Patient Care NEW YORK Doctors and patients overwhelmingly agree on key requirements for information technology IT to increase the quality safety and cost efficiency of care as well as core privacy protections according to a national survey released today by the Markle Foundation The Markle Survey of Health in a Networked Life is the first of its kind to compare the core values of physicians and the general public referred to here also as patients based on their opinions as consumers of health care on deployment of information technology in health care It comes at the start of a new federal program to help doctors and hospitals upgrade from paper to electronic health records Doctors and patients agree on the importance of putting accurate information in their hands to improve the quality safety and efficiency of health care Markle President Zoë Baird said A surprising 74 percent of doctors say they want to be able to share patient information with other professionals electronically As medical professionals shift from paper records to electronic systems this survey shows that the public and physicians overwhelmingly agree that we need to measure the payoff from investments in information technology in terms of better health and more cost efficient care Baird said Agreement between doctors and the public was strongest on requirements to ensure that new federal health IT incentives will be well spent The funding was included in the stimulus bill passed by Congress in 2009 Roughly 80 percent majorities of both the public and doctors agreed that it s important to require participating hospitals and doctors to share information to better coordinate care cut unnecessary costs and reduce medical errors said Carol Diamond MD MPH Managing Director at the New York based nonprofit foundation By the same overwhelming margin four in five doctors and patients expressed the importance of privacy protections for online medical records an expectation we have repeatedly found on the part of the public in our previous surveys Diamond said They also agree on the importance of measuring progress This survey is a powerful indication that the public and physicians alike want investments in health IT to come with accountability Survey Shows Many Doctors and Patients Believe Key Information is Lost in Their Health Care Conversations Of the doctors surveyed 94 percent said their patients at least sometimes forget or lose track of potentially important things they are told during doctor visits and 34 percent of the doctors said they themselves at least sometimes forget or lose track of potentially important things that their patients tell them Among the patient group 30 percent perceived that their doctors forget or lose track of potentially important information at least sometimes According to the Markle Survey of Health in a Networked Life we have found that Among the doctors 74 percent would prefer computer based means of sharing patient information with each other Only 17 percent of doctors predominantly use such means today Nearly half 47 percent of the doctors would prefer computer based means of sharing records with their patients Only 5 percent do so today Yet 74 percent of doctors said patients should be able to share their information electronically with their doctors and other practitioners Among the public 10 percent reported currently having an electronic personal health record PHR up from 3 percent who reported having one in Markle s 2008 survey Roughly 2 in 3 of both groups 70 percent of the public and 65 percent of the doctors agreed that patients should be able to download their personal health information online And 70 percent of the public said patients should get a written or online summary after each doctor visit but only 36 percent of the doctors agreed Only 4 percent of doctors say that they currently provide all their patients a summary after every visit Our past surveys show that most US adults believe personal health records that include copies of their own medical information would help them improve their health and communicate better with health professionals said Josh Lemieux Director of Personal Health Technology at Markle With this survey we find an increase in PHR use and learn that roughly two in three doctors agree that patients should have the option of online access to their personal health information The survey also confirms that having modern information tools comes with expectations for privacy protections Other findings from the Markle survey include Majorities of 70 percent to 80 percent of both patients and doctors support privacy protective practices such as letting people see who has accessed their records notifying people affected by information breaches and giving people mechanisms to exercise choice and correct information Majorities 65 percent of the public and 75 percent of doctors agreed that it s important to have a policy against the government collecting personally identifiable health information for health IT or health care quality improvement programs If there are safeguards to protect identity however at least 68 percent of the public and 75 percent of the doctors expressed willingness to allow composite information to be used to detect outbreaks bioterror attacks and fraud and to conduct research and quality and service improvement programs Large majorities of the public 75 percent and the doctors 73 percent said it will be important to measure progress on improving health care quality and safety to ensure the public health IT investments will be well spent Both groups each at 69
