Markle Health in a Networked Life
The Markle Survey on Health in a Networked Life uniquely compares the core values of physicians and patients on deployment of information technology in health care.
- The public and doctors are largely unfamiliar with key health IT and privacy aspects of the Recovery Act.
- There are high levels of public and physician agreement on what the priorities should be for the health IT investments—but low levels of familiarity with the actual program elements.
- This suggests an opportunity for greater communication with both the public and providers.
