  2. 2. Since 2011, the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions has surveyed a nationally representative sample of US physicians on their attitudes and perceptions about the current market trends impacting medicine and future state of the practice of medicine. The general aim of the survey is to understand physician adoption and perception of key market trends of interest to the health plan, provider, life sciences, and government sectors. In 2016, 600 primary care and specialty physicians were asked about a range of topics on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), value-based payment models, consolidation, and health information technology (HIT). This document outlines HIT and electronic health record (EHR) data, and provides comparisons from our 2014 survey. The national sample is representative of the American Medical Association file with respect to years in practice, gender, geography, practice type, and specialty to reflect the national distribution of US physicians.
