Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine factors impacting physicians’ quality of care. This study used the Center for Studying Health System Change’s 2008 Health Tracking Physician Survey data set consisting of 4720 physicians belonging to the American Medical Association. Regression analysis indicated that time with patient, career satisfaction, use of information technology for patient information, and income had a significant, positive impact on perception of high-quality care by physicians. Threat of malpractice lawsuits, percent revenue from Medicaid, and type of practice had a significant negative impact on perception of high-quality care by physicians. Among all the variables examined in our study, time with patient had the greatest impact on perception of high-quality care by physicians.
