Press Releases

The Physicians Foundation announced the release of "Poverty and the Myths of Health Care Reform," a thought-provoking and data-rich book documenting the impact of social determinants on healthcare costs. Authored by the late Richard (Buz) Cooper, M.D., the book draws on decades of health research and economic data to demonstrate the pervasive, debilitating effects of poverty on healthcare costs, resource utilization and overall patient outcomes. The book, now available, is published by Johns Hopkins University Press.

A new patient survey, released by the Physicians Foundation in May 2016, found that nine out of 10 U.S. adults report high levels of satisfaction with their primary care physician. However, patients cite increasing concern and frustration with their ability to manage rising healthcare costs and medical debt, with many indicating that they have avoided treatment plans, routine or specialty check-ups, or prescriptions as a result.

The Physicians Foundation is launching its fourth national Survey of America’s Physicians, one of the largest physician surveys ever undertaken in the United States. We’d like to hear from as many physicians as possible so we can accurately understand – and share with the public – physicians’ perspectives on the most significant issues in medicine and healthcare today.
