All Kinds of Personal Health Information is Shared

The HealthDataMap documents all kinds of health information being shared. For details, see the specific organization or kind of organization.

The biggest provider of health data documented on the HealthDataMap is discharge data provided by U.S. states. If you go to the hospital or to visit a doctor, information about the visit appears in the data. The information includes diagnoses, procedures, demographics, and payment information. Most of these datasets contain more than 100 fields of information [source].

Below is an abbreviated example from Washington State [source].
