Community Practice Responses to a COVID-19 Survey

We surveyed community healthcare practices across the country to better understand how they've responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact to their staff and operations, and how they plan to move forward.

In terms of the makeup of the respondents, nearly all of our respondents come from specialty healthcare practices, largely in ophthalmology and oncology. The size of practice varied from a 3-provider practice to a 35-provider practice.

If you're interested, we've also broken out a separate set of results for ophthalmology here and a set of results for oncology here. Below are the results across all practices that responded. We'll plan to run a similar survey in 4-6 weeks to see how the landscape has changed (and what has not changed).
