MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amidst ongoing national debate about healthcare costs, new research unveiled today by Siemens Healthcare shows that the vast majority of Americans (92 percent) agree that “the value of knowing exactly what is wrong with their health is as important as having access to a doctor in the first place” and nearly four in five Americans (78 percent) would want to have a test done to diagnose a disease, even if there is no treatment or cure available. This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Siemens Healthcare from April 9th to 11th, 2013 among 2,222 U.S. adults ages 18 and older.
