In addition, a special Service Lines Report presents leaders' assessment of growth potential for 21 top service lines. Key insights include:

  • 35% of healthcare leaders surveyed have a positive assessment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 30% have a negative assessment, and 35% are neutral
  • Citing major influences in ordering tests or procedures, 40% of physician leaders list fear of lawsuits and defensive medicine, 30% list patient pressure, and 20% list reimbursement and revenue considerations
  • 78% of nurse leaders say physician-nurse relations have improved over the past three years, but 26% say physician abuse or disrespect of nurses at their organization is common
