DataMotion Health, a provider of secure health information delivery services and solutions, released results of a survey conducted during HIMSS16 that revealed Hillary Clinton as the clear leader amongst both Democratic and Republican candidates for the healthcare industry, according to a DataMotion Health press release.
In the three-question survey, more than 200 attendees were asked about U.S. presidential candidate choices, aspects of the Affordable Care Act and how these fit into the overall direction of the healthcare industry, noted the release. When asked who would be the best choice for the industry, Hillary Clinton earned 37% of the vote, more than double that of second place finisher, Bernie Sanders (17%). When asked if ObamaCare increased organizational efficiency in healthcare, 54% answered no and 46% responded yes. Still, 71% felt the next administration should keep ObamaCare but some changes do need to be made.
“Healthcare is always a hot political topic, and with legislation such as ObamaCare, it’s become even more so during this campaign,” said Bob Janaceck, CTO and co-founder, DataMotion Health. “Our goal with this survey was to provide insight from ‘those in the trenches;’ the pros with firsthand knowledge of the operational and cost aspects of healthcare, impact of policy and technical advancements, and familiarity with efforts to ensure the U.S. health system produces the best patient outcomes possible.”
