Medical Economics asked our audience what they considered the major challenges facing physicians and practices in 2022.

2021 was one of the most challenging on record for U.S. physicians. After the lockdowns and telehealth surge of 2020, the year 2021 has been strange. Although things went back to “normal” in that most practices resumed seeing patients in person, the COVID-19 pandemic and its challenges remain. As we do each year, Medical Economics® surveyed our audience to find out what the big challenges were. By far, the top answer was “administrative burdens” including staffing, prior authorizations and electronic health records (EHRs).

Our editors decided to take a closer look at what these burdens entail, to help physicians get ready for whatever challenges 2022 will bring.
