The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology plans to survey more than 2,500 households across the nation to assess consumer attitudes toward health information exchanges.

ONC will conduct the survey using computer-assisted telephone interviews over an eight-week period. The office will prepare a draft report and conduct a Web seminar to discuss findings prior to publishing a final report at http://healthit.hhs.gov.

The survey "will permit us to better understand individuals' attitudes toward electronic health exchange and its associated privacy and security aspects as well as inform policy and programmatic objectives," according to an ONC notice published in the Federal Register.
