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.
