New York State residents think the state government should monitor doctors’ and hospitals’ quality; provide information about the quality of doctors’ and hospitals’ care; and hold them accountable for the quality of their care, according to a newly-released report by Public Agenda, a nonpartisan research and public engagement organization. The report, We Can Do Better: New York State Residents Weigh In on Health Care Quality also found that New Yorkers worry about health care quality nearly as much as they worry about affordability and insurance coverage.
We Can Do Better: New York State Residents Weigh In on Health Care Quality explores the views of a representative sample of New York State adults about the state government’s role in quality transparency and accountability, what quality means, what kinds of information about quality they want and who they trust to provide that information. The report is based on a representative survey of 800 adult residents of New York State conducted by Public Agenda and supported by the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth).
