The two organizations will test advertisements, speeches and other forms of communications relating to health care reform throughout 2009. The initial study was conducted by HCD Research during February 26-27, to obtain physicians' and consumers' perceptions of President Obama's new health care reform plan that was outlined in his speech to Congress on February 24, 2009. To view agreement curves and detailed results of the study go to: www.mediacurves.com.

In addition, an index will be used to report the perceptions of physicians and consumers regarding their opinions on the direction of health care reform.

According to Glenn Kessler, president and CEO, HCD Research, the HCD Health Care Reform Index will be used to monitor consumers' and physicians' perceptions of health care delivery and proposed regulations. "We will use the metric to determine the mood of health care providers and the consumers of their services to measure how these segments view the reform process and the outlook for the final result," Kessler explained.

While viewing ads or video clips from speeches, participants will indicate their levels of agreement by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses are recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. The participants will also be asked also pre and post-viewing questions.

The Media Curves web site provides the media and general public with a venue to view Americans' perceptions of popular and controversial media events and advertisements.
