THE COMMONWEALTH FUND, THE NEW YORK TIMES, and the HARVARD T.H. CHAN SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH released an interesting study called "AMERICANS’ VALUES AND BELIEFS ABOUT NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE REFORM" in October, 2019.

A major finding of the study is that Americans trust nurses to improve the health care system more than any other group.

"When it comes to public trust in various groups trying to improve the U.S. health care system, Americans favoring all three plans generally do not trust any interest major groups, with the exception of nurses. Pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies are the least-trusted groups, while state and federal governments, Congress, and business leaders also earn low levels of public trust.

Nurses received the highest levels of overall trust, with 65% of adults who favor improving the existing ACA; 59% of adults who favor replacing the ACA with state health plans; and 54% of adults who favor Medicare-for-all saying they trust nurses ‘a great deal’ when it comes to trying to improve the U.S. health care system.

Pharmaceutical companies earned ‘a great deal’ of trust from only 5% of adults who favor improving the existing ACA, 4% of adults who favor Medicare-for-all, and 3% of adults who favor replacing the ACA with state health plans, while health insurance companies earned ‘a great deal’ of trust from only 6% of adults who favor improving the existing ACA, 5% of adults who favor replacing the ACA with state health plans, and 3% of adults who favor Medicare-for-all."
