92% of Americans believe their health data should not be sold: survey

More than 92 percent of Americans do not want their health data sold and believe privacy is a right, according to a new survey from the American Medical Association.

In addition, nearly 75 percent of patients surveyed expressed concern about their healthcare data privacy, according to a July 25 news release. The survey highlights concerns around healthcare data privacy following the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. The decision overturned Roe v. Wade, which at the time had cemented the right to an abortion. In the wake of the Dobb. v. Jackson ruling, patients and physicians could face legal peril if healthcare data is not protected, the release said.

The survey of 1,000 patients was conducted by the patient insights company Savvy Cooperative at the beginning of 2022.
