Study shows 74% of PCPs, ER doctors surveyed say hospitals not doing enough to fix it; 58% were unsure if they’d recommend medicine as a career to a child or friend
BOSTON, MA June 20, 2016 – 74% of US primary care physicians (PCPs) and ER doctors do not feel their health care facility or practice is taking effective steps to address and prevent burnout, according to a new microsurvey by InCrowd, a provider of real-time market intelligence to life sciences and healthcare firms. The data represents a mid-year checkpoint on physician perceptions as Affordable Care Act (ACA) measures change the nature of doctoring, and as at least 30 major teaching hospitals undertake initiatives aimed at reducing burnout ahead of its potential impact on patient safety and quality outcomes.
“Our study corroborates a stubborn undercurrent of physician burnout as documented elsewhere that isn’t going away,” said Dr. Diane Hayes, co-founder and president of InCrowd. “We’ll be monitoring this important topic as healthcare executives work to make sure those who keep us well, are also keeping themselves intact, too.”
This physician survey used InCrowd’s mobile microsurvey platform to assess the responses of 200 qualified US-based PCPs and emergency medicine physicians who each have been practicing for 10 or more years. Responses were fielded in a several-hour period on May 13, 2016. Respondents had an average of 17 years in practice. The microsurvey used the Maslach Burnout Inventory of symptoms to determine respondents who could be considered to be experiencing burnout – the same index as used by the Mayo Clinic and MedScape studies.
