The Foundation's Health Tracking initiative was designed to support efforts to understand better health system changes and how these changes affect people.The Community Tracking Study Physician Survey is the only ongoing, nationally representative survey of practicing physicians at a time when national and local policy-makers are contemplating significant changes in regulatory and payment practices that would directly affect access to and the quality of physician services. Continuation of this unique survey is critical to the Center for Studying Health System Change's mission and its ability to contribute to current policy debates, maximizing RWJF's influence in these policy areas. This grant supports the planning phase for a fifth round of this survey. The project resonates with the Foundation's goal of producing information helpful to policy-makers, and it will provide Foundation staff teams with information helpful for developing their strategies and meeting their objectives. Project deliverables include a final survey instrument and sampling design.
