Patients rely on their primary care doctor to be their principal point of contact for their health care needs. But how effectively are physicians overseeing their patient's care? The California HealthCare Foundation asked Harris Interactive to survey a representative group of California's 36,000 primary care doctors to determine how well they coordinate their patient's care across other providers and sites, and how efficiently they communicate with patients about test results or other aspects of their care. Doctors from solo, small/medium, and large practice groups were included in the survey, as were Kaiser physicians.
