Provider Research

Physician Survey

In 2011, McKinsey surveyed more than 1,400 US physicians from a range of geographies and specialties (including primary care, internal medicine subspecialties, and surgery) about a number of topics, such as readiness for reform, waste and inefficiency in healthcare, employment and alignment models, and financial risk sharing. We also conducted follow-up interviews with a subset of these physicians to understand underlying drivers and mindsets. The survey enabled us to identify key barriers to strong physician engagement in performance transformation.
