2013 Deloitte Survey of U.S. Physicians

The 2013 Deloitte Survey of U.S. Physicians shows:

Most U.S. physicians are concerned that the future of the medical profession may be in jeopardy and consider many changes in the market to be a threat. They believe that the performance of the U.S. health care system is suboptimal, but the Affordable Care Act is a good start to addressing issues of access and cost.

Most also believe that:
  • Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements may be problematic, prompting many physicians to limit or close their practices to these enrollees.
  • Physician-hospital integration is expected to increase.
  • Clinical decision support information technologies that reduce unnecessary services and increase clinician adherence to evidence-based practices are of interest to physicians.
These are among the survey results in the new report from the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions and includes considerations for health care industry stakeholders.

#HIMSS13 Career Guide

The HIMSS13 Career Guide is now available online as a digital version. You don't need to be here attending HIMSS to benefit from the articles and the information that's presented in this guide. There is also a mobile version here. Want to be a health IT professional? Make sure to join HIMSS and participate in some of their upcoming events like webinars, conferences, and more.

Physicians working in Health IT here at #HIMSS13

Here at the 2013 HIMSS conference, I am surrounded by physicians working in health IT. Most of them work in hospitals and health systems. They are CMOs, CMIOs, and Medical Directors of Informatics. I am also surrounded by physicians working in health IT companies. These companies may be electronic health record (EHR) companies, mobile health startups, wireless providers like Verizon and AT&T, and a variety of computer and software companies. Did you know that Dell has a Chief Medical Officer? AT&T has a CMIO. Several physicians work at Microsoft.

HIMSS is a great networking conference. There are over 35,000 people here at this massive event, but there are plenty of networking events to connect with entrepreneurs and executives.

If you are here attending the HIMSS conference, I hope you'll join me at some upcoming networking events:
If you didn't make it to HIMSS this year, I hope to see you next year.
