Health in a Networked Life is an exploration of the social and cultural changes attributed to an increasingly interconnected and electronically tracked society. The Markle Survey of Health in a Networked Life directly examines physician and consumer expectations at the outset of federal health IT stimulus and health care reform.
Nearly all doctors surveyed say their patients sometimes or most times forget potentially important things they are told, according to the Markle survey. Roughly 1 in 3 of the doctors admitted to sometimes forgetting or losing track of important things that their patients tell them. About 1 in 4 patients perceived this to be so about their doctors.
