PHYSICIAN PRACTICE TRENDS SURVEY 2012

Between March and June 2012, Jackson Healthcare conducted a series of online physician surveys that included all medical specialities. This is the first of a multi-year survey to track physicians’ work patterns and plans in the era of health reform.

The survey consisted of six areas of focus:

  • Patient Capacity for Medical Practice
  • Access for Medicaid and Medicare Patients
  • Current Practice Environment
  • Accountable Care Organization/Medical Home Participation
  • Use of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants
  • Current Retirement Plans
