60% of people do research before buying a car but only 28% do any research before finding a doctor
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
On Friday March 12th, Dr. Wendy Lynch, PhD, whose career has included roles as faculty at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, senior scientist at Health Decisions International, and principal at Mercer Human Resource Consulting joined host Ron Bachman on the new Healthcare Consumerism Radio show on Atlanta Business RadioX™.
Dr. Lynch, who is the co-director for the Center for Consumer Choice in Health Care at the Altarum Institute and a senior scientist at the Health as Human Capital Foundation, sat down to discuss and provide a roadmap for companies navigating the new health and benefits landscape, which now includes five different generations of healthcare.
Show host Ron Bachman had this to say, “What I love about your work is that you bring to the table the facts, figures, surveys and studies that really support the whole movement and why it’s going on and why it’s successful. Learning the real facts and figures lets consumers know what they should be doing and why they should be doing it."
During the interview, Dr. Lynch noted that “60% of people do research before buying a car but only 28% do any research before finding a doctor.” This is something she is working to change. Bachman agreed that this needed to change and pointed out another flaw in consumer thinking saying, “Just because you consume more healthcare services doesn’t make you healthier.”
