How satisfied are you with the current state of medicine? The Physicians Foundation is surveying you and your 650,000 physician colleagues across the country to determine just that. The survey asks for your thoughts on health reform, electronic health records, new physician payment methods, ICD-10, and a variety of other topics. Take a few minutes to complete the survey by June 10.
A full copy of the final survey report will be emailed to all physicians who participate, and participants will also be entered to win one of five $500 Amazon gift cards and one $5,000 Amazon gift card. Additionally, the Physicians Foundation is offering a $5,000 grant to the state medical society that achieves the most total survey responses and a $5,000 grant to the state medical society that achieves the highest per capita response. As a founding member of the Physicians Foundation, TMA expects to be in the running to win both of those grants.
"This is the one national survey that allows physicians to share their perspective on the state of the medical profession," said Walker Ray, MD, Physicians Foundation president. "We'd like to hear from as many physicians as possible so we can accurately understand — and share with the public — physicians' perspectives on the most significant issues in medicine and health care today."
A nonprofit, grant-making organization, the Physicians Foundation is determined to strengthen the patient-physician relationship and help physicians sustain their medical practices in today's practice environment. The Physicians Foundation focuses on physician leadership, physician practice trends, physician shortage issues, and the impact of health care reform on physicians and patients.
