Introducing the Annual Healthcare Collaboration Report
The first annual Healthcare Collaboration Report, conducted in May of 2021 with The Harris Poll, polled more than 1,500 Americans and found respondents want to see industry players working together, with 64% saying the quality of healthcare would improve with closer collaboration.
The pandemic brought the need for future investment and collaboration to the forefront for Americans, with 88% of respondents agreeing that pandemic prevention requires a collaborative effort between government, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers, and patients.
Most adults across all political parties would support an increase in taxes if it led to:
- Lowering prescription drug prices (75%)
- Accelerating development of new treatments for common diseases (72%) as well as rare diseases (69%)
- Increased funding for vaccine development for future pandemics (67%)
Throughout the survey, collaboration presented as a consistent theme, with 52% stating that closer collaboration would increase the amount of healthcare innovation, and 84% agreeing greater collaboration across all groups involved in healthcare would help new drug development move more quickly.
