New Poll Finds Disease Prevention is Top Priority for Americans in Health Reform
Date:6/8/2009

people healthier and improve quality of life" than the statement "we should invest in prevention to lower health care costs" (21 percent).

"We gave Americans a list of proposals being considered to reform health care, and investing in prevention trumped them all," said Bill McInturff, Partner and Co-Founder of Public Opinion Strategies. "It's clear that Americans see the value of prevention for reducing disease, improving quality of life, and lowering health care costs."

"Spiraling health care costs and poor outcomes will only get worse in the absence of employer action and intervention," said Robert J. Gould, Ph.D., president for Partnership for Prevention. "Through Partnership for Prevention's Leading by Example initiative, we're seeing a growing number of corporations support healthy behaviors through worksite-based programs. One of our members - Dow Chemical Co. - reports that its workplace wellness program saved the company more than 9,000 absentee days last year and contributed value equal to seven cents per share of company stock. Smart businesses pay for prevention, because prevention pays."

Americans believe the nation needs to put more emphasis on prevention (59 percent) rather than thinking there needs to be more emphasis on treatment (15 percent), by nearly a four to one ratio. This represents a significant shift toward prevention over the last two decades -- in 1987, only 45 thought there should be greater emphasis on prevention.

The poll, which reflects the responses from 1,014 registered voters, was conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Public Opinion Strategies from May 7 to 12, 2009, and is available at www.healthyamericans.org. The margin of error was +/- 3.1 percent.
