More Hospitals Allowing Patients to Access and Transfer Their Digital Health Information
93% of hospitals and health systems enable patients to view information from their health record online, up from only 27% in 2012, according to new research from the American Hospital Association. 84% allow patients to download information from their health record and 83% allow patients to designate a caregiver to access health information on the patient's behalf. Researchers also found that large hospitals (300+ beds) are more likely than smaller hospitals to enable patient access to data and transfer it to third parties.
