The majority of Americans believe better coordination amongst healthcare providers would improve the quality of service in the industry, according to a Xerox report.

For the report, Harris Poll conducted an online survey of more than 3,000 U.S. adults in January 2017, to determine healthcare consumers' attitudes toward information sharing.

Here are three things to know.

  • Almost half of respondents (44 percent) expressed concern about having their personal healthcare information stolen.
  • The majority (76 percent) felt sharing healthcare information through an electronic method would be more secure than faxing paper documents.
  • The majority (87 percent) also believed better information sharing and coordination amongst providers would reduce wait times for test results and diagnoses.
