3. Impact On Patient Choice
It’s all well and good for a patient to express a preference. But it’s even more important to understand if there will be an impact on behavior. So we asked a set of questions to see if the respondents were willing to take an action on their preference.
|Would you choose a facility with AccuVein rather than one without?||85%||3%||12%|
|Would you be more likely to go to a blood test lab that used AccuVein?||87%||2%||11%|
|Would you be more likely to go to a hospital that used AccuVein?||83%||5%||13%|
Note: Because of rounding, percentages may not add up to 100%.
85% of the patients surveyed would choose a facility based on the use of vein illumination. When we were more specific, 87% indicated that they would choose a blood test lab and 83% would choose a hospital based on the availability of the AccuVein technology.
Furthermore, in the city setting that the surveys were given, they were willing to drive an additional 13 miles for a blood test and an additional 14 miles for a hospital – an amazing indication of the strength of preference.
|How much further would you drive to go to a blood test lab that used AccuVein?||13 Miles|
|How much further would you drive to go to hospital that used AccuVein?||14 Miles|
