Who Should Health Tracking Device Data Be Available to?

A new survey gives insight into what people want to share about their health.

Make it, and they will use it, and they will share it – at least when it comes to health tracking devices.

A recent survey showed that 71 percent of U.S. adults would use a health tracking device, but only if it was clinically accurate, according to MobiHealthNews.

In addition, 77 percent of those surveyed said the collected data should be not only available to patients, but also available to their doctors.

“Increasingly, patients are actively monitoring their own health data to better self-manage their chronic diseases and collaborate with their healthcare professionals,” said Daniel Z. Sands, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Society of Participatory Medicine. “Self-monitoring is a vital component of an efficient and high-functioning healthcare system. This survey shows that this concept resonates with the public, and that most respondents are willing to utilize technology to gather this data to improve their health."
