AMGA COVID-19 Pulse Survey Results
Survey: Road to Recovery
June 12, 2020
Thank you to the participants in our seventh COVID-19 pulse survey focused on the journey through the COVID-19 crisis for medical groups across the country. This survey is a check-in on where groups see themselves in the recovery process, what barriers remain, and what would make a difference going forward.

The survey results tell a story where most groups are feeling better, but have more progress to make and ongoing concerns about the outstanding barriers to . The threat of a second or third wave is still top-of-mind for many, in addition to patients’ fear of seeking care. Groups also shared that the two most critical changes to support recovery would be a COVID-19 vaccine and positive reimbursement changes from federal and commercial payers.
