Americans Favor Investment in Community and Home-Based Health Care, According to Harris Interactive Survey, September 2011

otential to reduce hospital length of stay and healthcare costs, respondents replied:

  • Agree (79 percent);
  • Disagree (11 percent);
  • Not Sure (9 percent).

Asked "Where should the U.S. government invest the most money to improve health care and cost-effective delivery of care?" respondents replied:

  • Community health clinics (37 percent);
  • Patients' homes (24 percent);
  • Hospitals (23 percent); and
  • Doctors' offices (15 percent).  

Given four choices for ways the government might cut Medicare spending to help reduce the budget deficit, respondents selected:

  • Raising the premiums high income Medicare recipients have to pay (59 percent);  
  • Raising the age people start receiving Medicare benefits (24 percent);
  • Cutting Medicare spending on home medical equipment such as oxygen, wheelchairs, and other equipment and services in their homes (9 percent); and
  • Raising the premiums all Medicare recipients have to pay (9 percent).  

Wilson commented, "The continuing, disproportionate cuts to Medicare reimbursement for home medical equipment and services only weaken the safety net that homecare providers bring to the nation's healthcare system when we should be encouraging more home-based care to help control spending."  

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of American Association for Homecare between September 13 and 15, 2011 via the QuickQuerySM online omnibus service among 2,028 U.S. adults age 18+.

Results were also weighted as needed to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population by age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and househ
