  • October 14th -- no meeting. A few individuals spoke on the phone, and the expectation was that meetings would be rescheduled to reach closure on the short survey (in process of being revised based on final feedback from some medical societies).
  • October 21st -- no meeting.
  • Nov 11th -- meeting was scheduled, but only George and David were on the call and spoke for a few minutes. David agreed to update the Wiki with the list of liaisons to organizations.
  • Nov 25 -- meeting was scheduled, but only Brett and David made it. Brett provided update on VA/DoD. They would like to respond to the survey, but not before their next CCDA committee meeting. Thus it may be difficult for them to get it done by December 23rd. David reported that he had also reached out to CHIME (upon suggestion from AHA), who plan to push the survey out at their next Washington debrief on December 7th. They don't expect a large number of responses, but still want to participate. Brett and David hoped that at the next RnP project team meeting, it could be decided when we will start analysis of the results (and hence when the survey should be closed).
  • MEETING SCHEDULE HAS BEEN BIWEEKLY since the engagement period began. The remaining meetings in 2015 are scheduled for December 9 and December 23rd. Stay tuned for more information about changes to the meeting schedule, once the survey deadline has passed.

    Long Survey

    Only to be administered once per organization.

    A PDF of the long survey can be found here File:LongSurvey.pdf

    The long survey (final) can be taken here Long Survey

    Short Survey


    To be taken by individual clinicians.

    A FINAL PDF of the short survey can be found here File:ShortSurvey.pdf. This is not to be used for conducting the survey, only for documentation purposes.

    The short survey (final) can be taken here Short Survey (FINAL version, updated October 30th). This is the general link that can be distributed to any provider wanting to take the survey EXCEPT for those in AAFP, ACP, AHA, and AMA organizations, which will each have their own link (distributed privately, not posted on this page)

    Preliminary Results

    As of 1/6/2016, the following number of responses had been received (approximate)

    • AAFP – 97
    • ACP – 3
    • AMA – 427
    • AHA -- 33
    • General – 38
    • HIMSS – none

    Total -- 598 Bob Dieterle's initial analysis indicates that we have representation from pretty much all types of venues and specialties. Largest single specialty is Family/General Practice. 103 were solo practitioners, 177 were in 2-5 provider groups (the largest single set of respondents). Bob will prepare some slides of the results. Interestingly, 57.7% of all respondents would prefer receiving MORE data, but having better tools to work with the data (filter, etc.).
