Physician Survey on Global Payments

Researchers from Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health recently surveyed practicing physicians in Massachusetts to determine their readiness to accept global payments.

The study had three goals: (1) to find out the current range of payment structures among physicians; (2) to understand their perceptions and attitudes toward global payments; and (3) to assess their perception of their readiness to enter into such contracts.

The report stated that physicians reported "having few or limited structures that could support population management of medical care,  such as electronic clinical information exchange systems across providers."
