Factors Affecting Physician Professional Satisfaction and Their Implications for Patient Care, Health Systems, and Health Policy – RAND (Sponsored by the American Medical Association) – 9 October 2013

“Purpose

This project, sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA), aimed to characterize factors that influence physician professional satisfaction. In the context of recent health reform legislation and other delivery system changes, we sought to identify high-priority determinants of professional satisfaction that can be targeted within a variety of practice types, especially as smaller and independent practices are purchased by or become affiliated with hospitals and larger delivery systems. Based on project findings and input from other sources, including its membership and experts in physician practice design, the AMA plans to develop possible pathways for American physicians to practice in models that are more effective, efficient, sustainable, and conducive to professional satisfaction.”
