ormly engage in behaviors that lead to productive office visits. Only one in five (20%) of respondents say that they always bring a list of questions to physician visits, and only 40% always bring a list of current prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and supplements to doctor visits.
  • Quality Care: Respondents indicate a readiness and a willingness to receive and use valid comparative quality data in choosing a physician. Almost 90% of respondents said they would be interested in receiving reliable quality data on local doctors. However, only one in five respondents (21%) reported that they would select the more highly rated physician if required to choose between a doctor who is familiar and one who is more highly rated in quality reports.
  • "Based on the findings of this research, the PPHP will focus on developing and implementing worksite programs to further empower employee-consumers to make informed decisions about their health care," said George Mones, director of human resources, City of Mesquite, whose employees participated in the survey.

    The worksite demonstration programs will be rolled out at several DFWBGH member companies early next year to capitalize on the consumer engagement opportunities revealed by the survey.
