Analysis of Physician Group Practices' Management of Chronic Illness


Results from the first National Survey of Physician Organizations in 2000 indicated that medical groups' use of care processes to manage chronic illness—although known to improve quality—was fairly low. They also showed that external incentives and information technology (IT) were associated with greater use of such processes. This project will resurvey large physician group practices to evaluate progress made toward improving the management of chronic illness, as well as the effectiveness of interventions and tools, such as payment incentives and IT. Data from this follow-up survey will be critical in evaluating incentive programs currently under way and in guiding future plans.
