Digital Health Study Says People Want to Share Health Data

January 15th, 2015

AND-Medical-wcuff-propageHealth Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic visited the Digital Health Pavilion at the International CES 2015 in Las Vegas to find the latest tech, tools, and information on digital health for consumers. He stopped by the AND Medical booth to talk with CEO Terry Duesterhoeft about a recent study they commissioned to determine how open consumers wish to be with the data from home health connected devices.

AND Medical makes many home health monitoring devices like blood pressure machines and they wanted to find out how much information consumers were willing to share with their health care professionals and other caregivers. They were surprised by how open consumers were willing to be with their health data in a protected environment in order to help them get healthier.

Most people were willing to share some or all of their collected health data with their doctors, nurses and other caregivers. This seems to go against the belief in professional health circles that considers consumers much more privacy conscious.
