    MGMA Stat - Harassment - Dec. 12, 2017

    The Medical Group Management Association’s most recent MGMA Stat poll asked healthcare leaders if their organizations have a policy specifically related to sexual harassment. Overall, 84% of the respondents stated yes, they do have a policy that specifically addresses sexual harassment; 12% responded no and the remaining 4% were unsure.

    As a follow-up, respondents were asked to describe how their organizations provide harassment training to employees. Most commonly, sexual harassment training is included as part of new employee orientation and is repeated annually. Often, the training occurs at staff meetings provided by online learning modules and is often accompanied by an assessment, test, or roleplaying exercise. Some respondents mentioned that their organization’s sexual harassment policy was only outlined in the employee handbook, while others report an annual review and revision of these policies.  

    The poll was conducted on December 12, 2017 with 1,242 total responses. Of this total, 5 indicated the question was not applicable to their situation with a net of 1,237 applicable responses. 

    MGMA Stat is a national poll that addresses practice management topics, the impact of new legislation, and related topics. Participation is open to all healthcare leaders. Results of other polls and information how to participate in MGMA Stat is available at: http://www.mgma.org/stat
