The Altarum Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey (CHESS) is designed to elicit respondents’ unbiased views on a wide range of health system issues, including confidence using the health system, financial burden and views on fixes that might be needed. Nationally, consumer worry about healthcare affordability is well documented, but the results of the Virginia CHESS offer insight on the specific concerns in the commonwealth.
VCHI partnered with the Altarum Healthcare Value Hub in early 2019 to bring the CHESS to Virginia.
