    Wondering if anyone out there has conducted a Physician Satisfaction Survey of your Medical Staff?  If so, paper or electronic?
    Would you be willing to share some of the questions you asked?  Thanks much!

    I conducted a physician satisfaction survey a few years ago that was mostly focused on our new transcription services.  I then sent out another survey three months after changes were made from the previous survey results.

    Since this was a few years ago the survey was sent on paper.  Now if I was conducting a survey again I would probably send on paper to some and electronic to some as some of our providers do not check their email, etc.

    I have done some physician EHR satisfaction surveys and staff employment satisfaction surveys.  Because it's so easy, and because they already have so many templates available, I have usually defaulted to SurveyMonkey.  (Not an endorsement, just familiar with them.)

    I don't think there's a specific one for physician satisfaction, but you can always combine questions from other survey templates and create your own. It's usually a relatively low-cost pursuit; my only advice is to keep it very focused and not too long; otherwise, some people just start choosing options to make it end.  Hope this helps!

    You can look at their templates here:  Healthcare Surveys: Questions & Templates | SurveyMonkey

    Thank you!  I couldn't find anything specific to HIM so I did just that.  I went to Survey Monkey and came up with a very short survey.

    Appreciate your response.
