Survey Shows Consumers Unlikely to Share Data with Tech Companies



The American public does not trust technology companies with personal health data, according to a survey from Rock Health, a venture capital firm focused on digital health. The survey, of 4,017 people, found that only 8 percent said they would share health data like medical records and lab results with “a technology company.” There was a huge gap between that figure and the number who said they would hand their health history over to a research institution (36 percent) or to their own doctor (86 percent). When asked whom they would share their DNA data with, the responses were similar.
