About the Survey
The federal government has focused on decreasing the regulatory burden on medical group practices. MGMA has long been a champion for decreased regulatory burden and increased administrative simplification and standardization in order to achieve a more efficient and effective care delivery process for patients and providers.
The findings presented here will be used in MGMA’s advocacy efforts to inform Congress, the Administration, and the larger healthcare community about the impact of federal policies and regulations on medical groups. This study is the second in a series to assess the burden level of regulatory processes for physician practices participating in Medicare programs, following MGMA’s 2017 Regulatory Burden survey.
About the Respondents
The survey includes responses from 426 individuals from group practices with the largest representation in independent medical practices and in groups with 6 to 20 physicians.
With a membership of more than 40,000 medical practice administrators, executives, and leaders, MGMA represents more than 12,500 organizations of all sizes, types, structures and specialties that deliver almost half of the healthcare in the United States.
