Physicians Survey Captures New Insights on Affordable Care Act Ads, Impact on Private Practice and Future Job Choices for Doctors


Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

During the final week before the Affordable Care Act (ACA) signup deadline, MDLinx and M3 Global Research, both part of M3 Group of companies, a leading provider of online marketing solutions to the healthcare industry, created and conducted a survey with 602 physicians regarding their thoughts on the effectiveness of ACA advertising and the impact and ramifications of Obamacare. Administration officials confirmed to the New York Times that $ 52 million was spent on paid media over the first three months of this year in support of ACA enrollment. There are 7.1 million sign ups to date.

Nearly 90% of physicians surveyed not only saw the ads but viewed more than one of the ACA ads, with over 80% watching them on television. Nearly 60% felt that the ads were a least somewhat effective and that the physicians surveyed felt that the perceived target audience was mostly the young and uninsured.

One significant research finding was the physicians’ perception of how the ACA will affect their practices in the long term. Over 70% felt that a major impact of the ACA would be lower physician interest in private practice ownership in the next 3 years, resulting in more physicians choosing to become an employee in another group practice or hospital.

“We definitely see from our MDLinx Career Center job board and our conversations with recruiters and physicians as well, the perception that the ACA will significantly increase the numbers of physicians looking for new positions over the next few years,” comments Mathew Baker, Vice President of Physician Recruitment Advertising for MDLinx Career Center*, the largest Healthcare Professional website with a job board, reaching nearly 600,000 physicians in the US alone. “There is a common theme that with the ACA in place, physicians will have increased patient load, less time per patient, with lower reimbursements. More physicians choosing employee status rather than practice ownership, could then suggest a significant upswing in physicians looking for new positions over the next few years.”

Last night, at the Annual Southwestern Physician Recruiters Association (SWPRA) Conference held in Sacramento, California, Lori Vickers, a physician recruiter for Memorial Care Medical Group, based in Tustin, California, commented, “Recently I’ve been getting several calls a week from physicians who are proactively exploring the option of giving up their practices to become employees. Some have shared that they have questions about the ramifications of the ACA, and its possible effect on the business end of their practice.”

Additional research highlights from the survey of over 600 doctors include:

Most physicians (84%) believe that the ACA will have an impact on their practice in the next six months, with over half expecting lower reimbursements, and over a third expecting to see more patients, with less time spent per patient.

Physicians responded that their patients had an overall negative sentiment regarding healthcare changes, with 56% of doctors surveyed indicating that their patients communicated that the ACA would negatively impact healthcare, and only 10 % thinking changes would be mostly positive.

Similarly, two thirds of physicians shared that conversations with practice colleagues and staff indicated that they felt that ACA healthcare changes would be mostly negative, with just 7% saying that conversations were positive.

*Note: No M3 Group company was involved in advertising the ACA to patients, physicians or to the general public.

Jupiter Medical Center’s Physicians Use Innovative Technology To Keep Up-To-Date On Patients Care


Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) March 22, 2014

Physicians at Jupiter Medical Center, who are participating in the Palm Beach Accountable Care Organization (ACO), are piloting an innovative technology called “MicroBloggingMD” created by M2 Information Systems, Inc. This technology allows physicians to receive secure emails and text message alerts when Medicare beneficiaries, enrolled in the ACO, have any encounter at Jupiter Medical Center including the ER and Urgent Care Center.

MicroBloggingMD provides doctors with ‘real-time’ patient status updates instead of learning about them hours or days later. Example notifications may include admissions, discharges, consult requests, radiology reports and labs. In addition, various clinical information is sent directly to the physician to speed up the diagnosis and treatment process.

With their clinical automation, MicroBloggingMD reduces texting demand thus improving accuracy and efficiency for hospital staff. The speed at which the information is received may improve outcomes for patients, while reducing cost for the hospital, insurance company and ultimately the patient. This secure and HIPAA-compliant messaging also spurs collaboration among doctors, another benefit to the patient.

“MicroBloggingMD offers physicians a safe, secure and efficient way to communicate in a HIPAA-compliant manner,” said Irma Lopez, MD, Internal Medicine, Palm Beach ACO Member, who has been testing the MicroBloggingMD application since August 2013. “We can communicate to our staff and stay ahead of our patients’ care if they have any urgent labs or need to be scheduled for a follow up appointment.”

Dr. Lopez is currently using MicroBloggingMD to receive notifications on patients discharged from Jupiter Medical Center within 24 hours after leaving so she can track her patients and schedule follow-up appointments to ensure her patients remain healthy and avoid readmissions. Dr. Lopez is also using this technology to receive alerts on patients with critical labs to help diagnose patients quickly. Dr. Lopez can receive these alert securely on her mobile device and can respond without waiting for a nurse to call her.

Physicians Forum on Affordable Care Act

A few nice medicare enroll images I found:

Physicians Forum on Affordable Care Act

Christiana Care Health System hosted more than 70 community doctors in December for a special physicians’ forum on health care reform initiatives.

Leaders from Christiana Care and State of Delaware officials spoke about state-wide efforts to enroll Delawareans in the Health Insurance Marketplace and their partnerships on innovative health care initiatives to achieve medicine’s “Triple Aim” — better health and better care at lower cost.

Both the Delaware Academy of Medicine and the Delaware Academy of Family Physicians co-hosted the forum.

“Our community has a very long-standing history of excellence,” said Janice Nevin, M.D., chief medical officer of Christiana Care. “We are here to serve our neighbors and we want to do it in a way that is expert and caring and we know partnerships with our physician community are key for us to provide innovative and effective care for our patients.”

Community physicians heard about Christiana Care’s role implementing the Affordable Care Act, and many resources and opportunities to partner with the health system to care for our neighbors. The forum introduced Christiana Care’s marketplace guides, specially trained employees who help patients understand and enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace and access health services. Christiana Care has partnered with the state through Choose Health Delaware to educate the public about the Health Insurance Marketplace. Christiana Care also is the only hospital-based health system in the region to hire marketplace guides to assist the uninsured. Marketplace guides are working throughout Christiana Care and visiting health fairs, churches, community centers and school-based health centers to educate Delawareans about how to enroll in the health insurance marketplace.

“Christiana Care is a terrific partner with us because of the way they take care of patients,” said Bettina Riveros, chair of the Delaware Health Care Commission, who gave an overview of the State Innovation Model during the forum. The state of Delaware won a special grant under the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, a special center created by the Affordable Care Act that provides billion in grants to health institutions that are designing initiatives to achieve medicine’s Triple Aim.

Doctors also learned about Christiana Care Quality Partners, a clinically integrated network that brings together doctors, other health providers and Christiana Care to develop and sustain clinical initiatives to achieve the Triple Aim. Christiana Care’s nearly 11,000 employees and their dependents (a total of 18,000 covered lives) will be the first members of the Christiana Care Quality Partners network, which goes live July 2014. Alan Greenglass, M.D., medical director of The Medical Group of Christiana Care, is CEO of Christiana Care Quality Partners. Douglas Azar is executive director of Christiana Care Quality Partners.

“We want to be leading health care transformation in Delaware,” Dr. Greenglass said. “We want to create an infrastructure and work together with our community physicians in Delaware to achieve the Triple Aim.”

Tim Gibbs, executive director of the Delaware Academy of Medicine, welcomed physicians to the forum.

It also featured a Q&A session in which community doctors could ask questions about how the Affordable Care Act will impact their patients and their practices. Panelists during the forum included Dr. Nevin, Dr. Greenglass, Azar, Riveros, Kathy Cannatelli, director of Community Health & Preventive Medicine; Lauren Pendergast, program coordinator for Christiana Care’s Marketplace Guides; and Michelle Amadio, director of the state’s health insurance marketplace. The forum was moderated by Omar Khan, M.D., associate vice chair, Department of Family and Community Medicine, and medical director for the Eugene duPont Preventive Medicine & Rehabilitation Institute & Center for Community Health.
