As many as five million Americans are diagnosed with valve disease each year.
Heart Valve Disease Awareness Surveys
Published August 30, 2016
These important surveys give insights into public awareness about heart valve disease. They were conducted in collaboration with Belden Russonello Strategists. The first put questions on Telephone CARAVAN, a national omnibus survey of adults via randomly selected landlines and cell phones.
The second was an in-depth analysis to learn more about awareness levels and the experiences of heart valve disease patients as they are diagnosed and seek treatment. A survey group of more than 400 individuals diagnosed with HVD was recruited through the Harris Panel—including members of its third party panel providers. The panel provides a robust representative sample of the general U.S. population. Additionally, patient focus groups in Chicago and New York provided a qualitative look at the patient experience.
