Questionnaires have been mailed for MODERN HEALTHCARE's 1995 Multi-unit Providers Survey.
The organizations to be surveyed include hospital systems, long-term-care providers, ambulatory-care chains, home-care/home medical equipment chains, and provider-owned HMOs and PPOs.
The questionnaire for hospital and long-term-care systems is intended for organizations that own, lease, sponsor or manage two or more acute-care hospitals, specialty hospitals or nursing homes. The deadline for the systems survey is March 3.
The HMO and PPO questionnaires are limited to organizations owned, operated or financially supported by a hospital, hospital system, hospital-based subsidiary or joint venture involving a hospital.
The HMO, PPO, and ambulatory-and home-care chain surveys are due Feb. 17.
To request the appropriate questionnaire or obtain additional information, call Joan Fitzgerald, survey editor, at 312-649-5382.
