Trust: Online Medical Records

How do you feel about online banking? Is it convenient? Are you still wary about your security online?

What about accessing your health records online?

Like most things … our medical data is increasingly ending up online … which means wherever you are … you … and your doctor can see your records.

But around half of us are still concerned about privacy and security … according to a survey by GFK.

Kelly Griffiths from GFK says they found nearly three-quarters of Australians (73%) use some form of technology to manage their health, yet half (51%) rank security of personal information as their top concern.

Are you happy for your medical records to end up online?
