New Telehealth Impact Survey Seeks Physician Input

The American Medical Association (AMA) has been working on a Telehealth Impact Physician survey as part of an effort of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition Telehealth Workgroup. American College of Radiology® members are invited to complete the survey by Aug. 13, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a significant shift towards telehealth. The goal of this project is to learn more about your experience with telehealth to identify the challenges, barriers and benefits.

According to an invitation from the AMA:

Building on existing research, your response will help inform additional resources needed across the industry and health care community, provide insights to federal and state policymakers, and identify gaps in current research. Respondent and organization information will remain confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. The findings will be shared and made available to all on the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition website, as well as shared by the various organizations participating in the Coalition Telehealth Workgroup*.

The survey is expected to take up to 15–20 minutes to complete, and responses are requested by August 13. Please remember to press submit when you get to the end of the survey.
