Surveying Physician Practices About Their Capacity to Provide Coordinated, Patient-Centered Care


A number of federal programs are being implemented to help physician practices transform themselves into providers of patient-centered, coordinated, and efficient care. The proposed survey will assess physicians' capacity to deliver this high level of care. Questions will explore: the organizational settings and local health care markets in which primary and specialty care physicians practice; relationships with other providers; care coordination processes; type of reimbursement; and the use of health information technology to tailor health care interventions based on clinical need, make care safer, support clinical decisions, and exchange clinical information. To assess progress over time, the survey will be conducted first in 2011 and again in 2013.
