If someone were to stop you in the street and ask you if you were optimistic about the survival of independent health care groups in the years ahead, how would you respond? According to the results from our 4th annual Physician Sentiment Index™ (PSI), nearly 80% of those surveyed (all physicians) said they are NOT optimistic. Surprised?
In partnership with our Epocrates brethren, we surveyed physicians across America, from a variety of specialties and practice sizes, to understand exactly how they’re feeling about navigating various industry changes and challenges. In addition to far reaching concerns associated with the future of independent physicians, notable themes from the 2013 PSI focus on doubts in the ease and value of accountable care, shortcomings with the promise of electronic medical records (EMRs), and general pessimism with the direction that patient care is headed.
To give you a sense of prominent 2013 PSI findings, we created an infographic – check it out:
