The 2014 National Physician Survey (NPS) data will be released on December 2, 2014. The survey focused on the use of information technology by physicians in Canada. It collected information on adoption, access, and benefits of electronic records, sharing electronic information, telehealth/telemedicine, social media, physician work hours, and more. The release will provide highlights of the results at national, provincial, and specialty specific levels.
You can sign up to the NPS Mailing List to receive e-mail alerts as the data becomes available. Please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Depending on the specialty, physicians are experiencing both increased and decreased need for their specialty. However, increased demand may not result in increased provision of services in a timely fashion if access to resources such as hospital beds is viewed as less than optimal; this will not only vary by specialty but by province as well.”
