‘Medical data not safe with hospitals’

About 57% of the people do not want their medical information stored at the state or the hospital levels, but only at the central level, over privacy concerns, a study has indicated.

The study was carried out to understand the public pulse with regard to the creation of a digital health ID for citizens.

Also, 48% of the citizens surveyed are against the use of this information for research and promotional activities.

Some 82% said they do not want to share sensitive data such as banking details.

The survey by LocalCircles, a community social media platform, received about 34,000 responses from 272 districts of India.
