Some things, like the success rate of cyberattacks, can only be learned by surveying, and the number of responses have a direct effect on the usefulness of the findings. Sophos’ 2022 ransomware survey collected 5,600 responses. A physician income survey conducted by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) had over 150,000 respondents. A large survey specific to O&P can expect less than 1,000 respondents. There’s still plenty that can be discovered from that number of responses, but the value of the data rises exponentially with a higher response rate. With robust survey data, individual facilities—and the O&P industry as a whole—can become stronger, more resilient, and better able to adapt to the technological and business challenges of the future. Survey results can help shape policy, drive innovation, promote employee retention, and draw attention to risk management issues.
One of the ideas behind EDGE Advantage Data, our new information repository, is that every response to an O&P EDGE survey can amplify the knowledge and value of the profession—internally and externally.
Consider how this survey data from Express Healthcare Management might look if it were specific to O&P.
- Experian Health found that 90 percent of health systems are seeing high turnover for roles in revenue cycle management and patient experience.
- MGMA found that 80 percent of healthcare leaders believe that using AI will be crucial for success; 3 percent consider it already essential.
- Elsevier’s Clinician of the Future 2023: Education Edition found that over 60 percent of medical students think AI will become an integral part of clinical care and help with diagnosis, treatment, and improve patient outcomes.
