Physician's Foundation Survey: The State of America's Physicians

This year, nearly 9,000 physicians across the country shared their perspectives on important issues such as burnout, social determinants of health and EHRs in a survey conducted by the Physician's Foundation. The result is a comprehensive look at the state of America's physicians.

Key Takeaways:

Physician burnout - 78% of physicians say they have experienced feelings of burnout. This staggering statistic underscores the overall impact of mounting regulatory and insurer requirements, loss of clinical autonomy and challenges with electronic health record (EHR) design on physician attitudes toward their medical practice environment.

Social determinants Social determinants of health such as poverty, unemployment, lack of education and addiction continue to greatly affect well-being and eventual health outcomes. Only 1% of physicians reported that none of their patients were affected by such conditions.

Professional satisfaction - 79% of physicians report that patient relationships continue to be their greatest source of professional satisfaction.
