2014 MMS Physician Practice Index

The Massachusetts Medical Society Physician Practice Environment Index is a statistical indicator of nine factors that affect physician practices at both the state and national level.  The state and national indices provide a general overview of the past year, while variations in the nine specific index components, such as median physician income levels or cost of maintaining a practice, provide insight into the underlying causes of change. 

Physician Practice Index - 2014

In 2013, the Massachusetts index declined 0.3 percent and the United States increased 0.2 percent.  In previous years, the national environment has been consistently more favorable for physicians than the environment in Massachusetts. This year, the gap between the local and national indices was the largest of any other year measured by this report.
