Physicians feel reimbursement, EMRs and hospital employment as key factors to limiting physician pay according to a recent survey by Medicus Firm. The survey entitled, 2013 Physician Practice Preference and Relocation Survey was conducted with over 2,500 doctors revealed several workforce trends and practice preferences.

Compensation seemed to be a sore subject for many physicians. When asked what they feel limits their income the most, 30.3% of physicians selected “declining reimbursements” from a list of several factors. However, many physicians wrote in answers to this question rather than choosing one from the list provided.
