Who should participate

Only one person from your group is needed to participate in the Survey. This respondent should be the person best suited to answer group-level questions about the characteristics, structure, and features of your HMG and its staff. There should only be one response submitted per group; however, multisite groups may submit data on behalf of each of their sites.

Should I submit as a single site or as a multisite group?

  • Single site: a single, unified group of hospitalists that may work in one or several hospitals.
  • Multisite: an organization or group that operates separate and distinct practices in multiple different hospitals/locations. These practices generally have separate staff, may have divergent practice policies and procedures, and typically have distinct budgets/finances.

Multisite Instructions: Submitting as a multisite has never been easier with our new Multisite Retake function, allowing you to repopulate additional surveys with data from your first submission. Follow the instructions at the end of the online Survey to submit for multiple sites. See the Multisite Reporting Guide for more information or view the tutorial video that walks you through the multisite submission process.

How long is the Survey?

The online survey uses skip logic to ensure you only get questions that apply to your practice. No questions are required, so if you see any you cannot answer, move on to the next question.

If you are reporting on behalf of your HMG, having key information at your fingertips will greatly reduce your time.

Where can I go if I have more questions?

We participate every time the survey is available. We find it extremely helpful when we are looking at the recruiting and retention of hospitalists, looking at the compensation is and knowing what is happening out there in the industry.
