The AMA and more than 70 other organizations are conducting a comprehensive multi-specialty survey of America's physician practices. The results will be used to positively influence national decision makers to ensure accurate and fair representation for all physicians and patients, and to articulate the challenges of running a practice that provides expert patient care, while operating a business that is sustainable. Of particular importance is the section of the study pertaining to practice expenses and the amounts that are attributable to you. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has indicated it will use the results of this study to help determine physician payment. The survey firm, dmrkynetec, will contact randomly selected physicians and practice managers to collect responses. All responses will remain confidential.
Please alert your staff regarding your willingness to participate in this survey and the importance of accepting incoming calls, faxes or emails from dmrkynetec, the firm administering the survey. We have attached a sample of the letter that was sent to physician practices earlier this year.
If you have been selected to participate in this important effort and have any questions about this survey, please call toll-free at 1-877-816-8940 and ask to speak with one of dmrkynetec's executive interviewers about the 2008 Physician Information Survey
