Americans Rate US Health Care as Poor

MARCH 01, 2005

A recent survey indicated that Americans are not too keen on US health care. The survey, conducted by Research!America, found that 60% of Americans think the United States does not have the best health care system in the world, and 64% said most Americans do not receive the health care they need. A majority of the respondents (70%) felt that it is imperative for the United States to invest in more research to guarantee a solid scientific base for health care and its delivery.

Furthermore, a staggering 95% agreed that health care should be based on the most recent research available. In response to how much of each dollar should be spent on health services research, the survey revealed that 56% of the participants said a "somewhat"or "much"higher portion of the health dollar should be earmarked for health services research.
