Geneia Supports America’s Physician Groups

San Diego, CAGeneia, a healthcare analytic solutions and services company that is simplifying the evolution to value-based care, announced today its sponsorship of America’s Physician Groups (APG) Annual Conference Quality and Efficiency: How to Succeed in Risk-Based Models. APG represents more than 300 medical groups, independent practice associations and integrated healthcare systems and “assists accountable physician groups to improve the quality and value of healthcare provided to patients.

“Geneia has a long tradition of helping physicians succeed in value-based care and is proud to support America’s Physician Groups,” said Geneia President Heather Lavoie. “Because we recognize the invaluable role physicians play in society and the critical shortages our nation faces, we have explicitly concentrated on software design that reduces administrative burden and physician burnout. Through our Joy of Medicine initiative, we have called on other health IT companies to involve physicians in product design and implementation and measure physician satisfaction.”

In 2018, Geneia conducted a national survey of physicians and discovered the Physician Misery Index has increased to nearly four out of five. The survey also found: 

  • 80 percent of doctors say they are personally at risk for burnout.
  • 86 percent agree that “the heightened demand for data reporting to support quality metrics and the business-side of healthcare has diminished my joy in practicing medicine.

At the same time, surveyed physicians acknowledged the positive impacts of data and analytics tools. Strong majorities of users and non-users of population health tools say value-based care models and the population health tools that support them prove useful in identifying high-risk patients who need screenings or care management and quickly narrowing and flagging patients who need proactive screenings or monitoring.
