This portion of the survey focused on how comfortable consumers and HCDMs are with sharing personal health and medical information for a better experience. Overall, health care practitioners were more willing to share personal and private information than patients or other citizens. The degree to which all clinicians, patients and citizens are willing to share personal health information and to improve the quality of care varies by geography.

Cisco recently announced at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference the results of the Cisco Customer Experience Report focused on health care. The global report examined the perceptions of consumers and health care decision makers (HCDMs) on the patient experience in health care.

The results of the report demonstrate that as information, technology, bandwidth, and integration of the network become the center of the "new world," both human and digital aspects are key parts to the overall patient experience. These components lead to more real-time, meaningful patient and doctor interaction.

The survey studied the views of consumers and HCDMs on sharing personal health data, participating in in-person medical consultation versus remote care and using technology to make recommendations on personal health. Views on these topics differed widely between the two groups (consumers and HCDMs) and the ten geographies surveyed. 

The global report conducted in early 2013, includes responses from 1,547 consumers and HCDMs across 10 countries. Additionally, consumers and HCDMs were polled from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages within each country.
