According to a survey by Accenture’s Consulting Group entitled “Reconciling the Great Healthcare Consumer Paradox: Are Consumers Willing to Change to Get What They Want?”, consumers indicated that  72% of retail consumers say affordability is their most important consideration when it comes to healthcare compared to 16% who cite the quality of care, and 9% who cite access. However, only 23% of those surveyed say they would be willing to change the primary care physician they see for regular office visits, 29% would change the hospital they use for inpatient care, 43% would get routine care from a nurse practitioner rather than a physician, and 41% would change brand prescriptions for treating the same condition. And while 60% say that low out-of-pocket costs for doctor visits is an important consideration, only 19% think it’s important to know the cost of care in advance.
