Marking National Health Information Technology Week, the University of Phoenix’s College of Health Professions School of Health Services Administration recently released the results of a survey that show Americans are increasingly comfortable having their health care records on new technologies.
“As Americans become
more trusting of the technology being used to manage their personal health
information, the industry has an obligation to preserve that trust by investing
and developing new technologies, protocols and systems that can provide them
with the security they deserve,” University of Phoenix School of Health
Services Administration Dean Mark Johannsson said. “National Health IT
Week draws attention to the important issue of exploring new information
technologies in advancing the healthcare industry.”
According to the
survey, 59 percent of Americans are comfortable with their records being
transmitted across networks and country borders, but 72 percent are concerned their online records are vulnerable to hackers. This represents a slight
decrease in American’s discomfort with new technologies from a similar survey
“The faculty at both
University of Phoenix College of Health Professions and College of Information
Systems and Technology are working together to make sure the next generation of
health and IT professionals are collaborating to advance technologies and best
practices vital to providing patients with the best possible care,” Johannsson said.
