This research was aimed on addressing patients’ perspective in medical field. A self-selection questionnaire was developed and distributed among patients at selected healthcare providers. Specifically we wanted to evaluate patients’ opinions in big cities. From the results we have found that participants in both environments (big cities v rural regions) exhibit similar attitudes towards the security of their medical records. Habitants of big cities demonstrated higher trust in the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) which was presumably related to being more electronically adept.
