Medical Group Management Association’s most recent MGMA Stat poll asked practice leaders if they personally engaged in preventative health behaviors that could prevent disease or detect disease at an asymptomatic stage. More than 82% of the respondents stated that they have, 16% had not, and the remaining 2% were unsure.
The respondents who engaged in preventative health behaviors in the past year most commonly cited they employed exercise routines including yoga, weight lifting and stretching; focus on nutrition, slightly fewer responded that they engaged in improving their diet and weight loss; and others described that they focused on stress relief, meditation and improving life balances.
The poll was conducted on January 2, 2018, with 1,176 total 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 professionals. Results of previous polls and information on how to participate in MGMA Stat is available at: mgma.org/stat.
