About the Survey
The results of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA)’s annual Regulatory Burden Survey reveal there is no shortage of opportunities to reduce regulatory burdens on physician practices. From measuring quality to completing prior authorization requirements, medical practices face mounting regulatory hurdles that interfere with clinical goals and improving patient outcomes. The Annual Regulatory Burden Survey provides MGMA with critical data on the real impact of federal policies and regulations, allowing us to better educate Congress and the Administration about obstacles to delivering high quality patient care.
This year’s survey responses demonstrate that there is still much to be done at the federal level to provide regulatory relief for providers and put patients over paperwork. MGMA will continue to play a key role in the policy discussion to ensure that medical practices have a voice in Washington.
About the Respondents
The survey includes responses from executives representing over 400 group practices. 66% of respondents are in practices with less than 20 physicians and 14% are in practices with over 100 physicians. Three-fourths of respondents are in independent practices.
With a membership of more than 45,000 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.
