Seventeen percent of U.S. adults say they have online access to their health records, according to a recent survey by Harris Interactive.
The survey found that 12% of U.S. adults have email access to their physicians, 11% have the ability to book appointments online and 10% have the ability to view and pay their medical bills online. Only 6% of U.S. adults have online access to tools for estimating medical costs, the survey found.
The survey is based on a nationally representative online poll of 2,311 U.S. adults conducted between July 16 and July 23.
