Most Americans want more disease-management programs and think prevention will save money, according to a new poll conducted for Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Many see savings in disease prevention, poll finds
Some 71% of those surveyed said they favored more investment in disease prevention. And 70% said they think prevention will save money rather than cost money. Some 60% said they believe investing in prevention is worth spending $34 billion out of the total $900 billion proposed for healthcare reform in Congress. Forty-four percent said they strongly favor investing more in prevention.
The poll was conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Public Opinion Strategies. A total of 1,008 registered voters nationwide were surveyed in early November.
