Americans Trust Docs, But Not Computerized Records

Lucas123 writes “A soon-to-be-released survey from CDW shows that Americans trust their physicians to use their health information responsibly, but they’re very concerned that once in electronic format, their personal health information may suddenly show up on the Internet. Their fears may not be unfounded. CDW said that survey data showed 30% and 34% of doctors lack basic anti-virus software and network firewalls, respectively. Most amusingly, however, nearly a quarter of the 1,000 patient respondents said they don’t even trust themselves with access to their own electronic health records.”
