Topsfield, MA September 5, 2016 MedData Group, LLC a leader in providing data solutions and demand generation services to the professional healthcare community, announces the latest findings from their MedData Point physician survey. MedData Point is a market research program powered by MedData Group and in partnership with Capko & Morgan, that collects and analyzes data to provide healthcare marketers with insights into the latest trends, technologies and perceptions in healthcare among physicians across a variety of specialties, ages, and practice sizes.

In this latest survey, MedData Group asked physicians about their satisfaction with their practice settings. Based on 253 physician responses, MedData Group found that about 20% of physicians said they are considering owning their own practices in the future, and 8% said they’re planning to start a new practice in the next three to five years.  While these may seem like small percentages, they are more than eight times the national average, which is less than one new firm for every 100 Americans. The top benefit identified for owning a private practice was having more control and flexibility. The top challenge identified was government interference. Neither age nor specialty played a significant role in respondents’ thoughts on private practice.

The survey results show that physicians are still largely positive about practice ownership as a good career decision, despite many media outlets predicting that private practice is going away. This has interesting implications not only for physicians, but also healthcare companies, and patients.  For more information on this survey, please on Physician Satisfaction with Practice Settings.
