The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act along with other economic forces will significantly change the way hospitals and physicians work with one another.
To help measure that change, Modern Healthcare in partnership with Press Ganey, the patient-satisfaction measurement firm based in South Bend, Ind., is conducting an industrywide survey on hospital-physician relations. The 2010 Hospital-Physician Relations Survey will examine the state of relations between hospitals and their employed physicians and how those relations may change.
The survey is now open and is available to all readers of Modern Healthcare and sister publication Modern Physician. Readers can take the survey at modernhealthcare.com/surveys. The survey deadline is Sept. 20.
Modern Healthcare and Press Ganey will analyze the results and report the findings in the Nov. 8 issue of both Modern Healthcare and Modern Physician.
For more information on the survey, please contact Rebecca Mielcarski, special projects/research editor, at [email protected] modernhealthcare.com or 312-397-5511.
