In a survey of 1,000 patients conducted by the American Medical Association with Savvy Cooperative, a patient-owned source of health care insights, this percentage of patients believe privacy is a right regarding their health data. Patients feel uncomfortable with social media sites, employers, and big tech companies having access to their health data.

In a study conducted by the Chartis Group, a health care advisory and analytics firm, they discovered that this percentage of health systems plan on partnering with competitors to personalize care delivery in an attempt to step into the “new era of care.”

In 2021, this percentage of inpatient claims in Nevada contained a social determinant of health diagnosis code. According to a study conducted by Hospital Pricing Specialists, a data analytics company, this percentage is the highest in the United States.

An artificial intelligence developed by researchers from the Center for Applied Genomics (CAG) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was able to positively predict ADHD this percentage of the time.

The Chartis Group found that this percentage of health systems intend to plan or execute their efforts of personalizing care within the next five years. With the interaction between patient and provider being emphasized more than ever, these efforts will hopefully translate into more meaningful insights and interactions, and faster infrastructure options within the health care sphere.

This percentage of patients who participated in an American Medical Association survey stated they were concerned about their health data being used by companies for discriminatory purposes, such as excluding them from opportunities to find housing, gain employment, or receive benefits. They feel efforts to extend privacy should also have protections against discrimination to avoid creating greater inequities.
