80% of US physicians in 6 specialties say their practice is already performing elective procedures or will soon begin, yet only 40% feel prepared for second wave as they reopen with caution
WATERTOWN, MA July 2, 2020—As US states lift COVID-19 restrictions, four out of five non-frontline treating specialist physicians in the US report that their practices either had already begun performing elective procedures as of June 12-13, 2020, or that they expect their practices to begin performing elective procedures within the next 30 days. Only 5% of these US specialists say their practices plan to hold off until Labor Day or later before resuming elective procedures. Yet only 40% say that their facilities are prepared for a second wave or any local outbreaks caused by the states re-opening.
These are findings from the InCrowd Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Non-Frontline Treating Physician Tracking Report—Wave 2, a snapshot of US physician sentiments from oncologists, neurologists, rheumatologists, cardiologists, gastroenterologists, and dermatologists conducted and sourced by InCrowd, the pioneer for real-time, high-quality primary market intelligence for the life science industry.
“US physicians are reinventing the provider office of the future and adapting in real-time to a new patient journey and experience, as they search for a new equilibrium amid divergent demands,” said Daniel S. Fitzgerald, CEO and president of InCrowd. “Our new specialists report suggests the doctors have made great strides in balancing strategies for restoring patient volumes against painstaking efforts to help patients feel safe and comfortable enough to visit the provider’s facility again. We’ll continue to monitor physician feedback as a vital element in establishing a new normal.”
With recent spikes in COVID-19 cases forcing curtailment to elective procedures in some hard-hit communities, InCrowd’s new findings document significant care delivery progress along with lingering perceived issues in governmental preparedness.
InCrowd’s Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Non-Frontline Treating Physician Tracking Report—Wave 2, included the perceptions of n=201 US physicians, including 103 practicing in offices, and 98 practicing in hospitals. Total respondents included oncologists (n=40), neurologists (n=33), rheumatologists (n=33), gastroenterologists (n=33), cardiologists (n=33), and dermatologists (n=29). The 7-minute MicroSurvey for Wave 2 fielded June 12-13, 2020. For more information download the full Wave 2 report.
