Though optimism is on the rise among treating physicians, most see a long, drawn-out return to normalcy more than six months away
WATERTOWN, MA April 28, 2019—As countries wrestle with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, US physicians report sluggish optimism around preparedness, safety, and institutional efforts, while many worry about the future, including a second outbreak and job security. These findings are from the fourth wave of a COVID-19 tracking report on US frontline treating physicians, conducted and sourced by InCrowd, the pioneer for real-time, high-quality primary market intelligence for the life science industry.
“We’ve been cutting back on staff due to
overall revenue reductions, but have increased acuity and complexity, which
requires more staffing. This puts even more of a burden on those of us still

InCrowd’s research covers physician perceptions starting in January 2020, when the company first began investigating COVID-19’s impact on frontline treating physicians. Key findings from Wave 4 show that:
“It’s good to see some optimism from the reports of our respondents on the frontlines of this crisis,” said Daniel S. Fitzgerald, CEO and president of InCrowd. “Since we began tracking in January, we’ve seen predominantly negative trend on most of our metrics. The implications of the pandemic are uniquely felt by those in the trenches. Frontline treaters are now facing new pressures, increasing numbers of COVID patients, fear of losing their jobs, and trying to adapt to telehealth and other care delivery solutions, among others. However, their growing confidence in local governments, testing, and preparedness should be inspiring for us all. We’ll continue to monitor this important topic by bringing the voice of the healthcare professional to light.”
The methodology and sampling of Wave 4 of InCrowd’s COVID-19 Frontline Treating Physicians’ Report is consistent with Waves 1 (n=150), 2 (n=150), and 3 (n=263), offering the sentiments of 203 frontline US physicians via a 10-minute MicroSurvey™ on April 14-15, 2020. Wave 4 frontline physicians included emergency medicine and critical care specialists (n=83), pediatricians (n=59), and primary care physicians (n=61), each of whom is treating 20 or more unique patients for flu-like symptoms.
