NEW YORK and LONDON and OSLO, Norway, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fine Research, the Latin American fielding agency, in collaboration with Confirmit and Reckner Healthcare, launched an initiative to assist victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. 2,870 doctors in the Americas, from Canada to Argentina, were surveyed about the preparedness of these countries for a natural disaster. For every completed survey, the equivalent of a blanket and a drum of water was donated to the victims through Save the Children mission in Haiti.
Confirmit, the leading global solutions provider for Customer Experience, Voice of the Employee and Market Research, donated its comprehensive end-to-end management platform, Confirmit Horizons, to fuel this program and boost the number of surveys that could be completed within the initial investment from Fine.
"The Confirmit Horizons platform was easy for our team to use and the doctors taking the survey," said Diego Casaravilla, managing partner at Fine Research. "User friendliness was a key need when searching for partners for this initiative. We wanted to make sure there were no technology issues that could hinder participants from completing the survey. We're extremely grateful for Confirmit's contribution."
Key findings from the survey include:
- According to their fellow doctors, no country is well prepared to face a natural disaster.
- While Chileans, Americans and Canadians are slightly less negative about their own capabilities, Mexicans rate in the middle, and Brazilians and Argentinians are the most pessimistic.
- Consistent with this regional perception, a majority of physicians surveyed in each country have not received any specific training to cope with natural disaster events. Additionally, most hospital doctors stated no such training has been held at their workplace.
"We are absolutely delighted to help Fine Research with its initiative with Save the Children," said Henning Hansen, Confirmit President and CEO. "While we typically are devoted to helping our clients' businesses succeed, this donation is focused on helping those in need. We are proud to support Fine Research in its Haiti relief efforts by providing critical resources that would otherwise not exist for these children."
