2013 Deloitte Survey of U.S. Physicians: Perspectives about health care reform and the future of the medical profession

The 2013 Deloitte Survey of Physicians found that:

“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. ‘
