Healthcare consumers are dissatisfied with the state of health care information in their lives, according to a survey supported by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Oliver Wyman, and conducted by the Altarum Institute. The survey found that vulnerable US health citizens are health information-compromised. This group of people tends to be uninsured, Spanish-speaking, caregiving, and enrolled in Medicaid. The lack of health/care information access jeopardizes care access and quality, putting people at-risk for worse health outcomes, eventual higher costs, and greater burden of disease compared with people who enjoy health information access.
