How long does it take for a patient to see a physician?

March 30, 2017

Merritt Hawkins logoHow long does it take for a new patient to see a provider? Washington Hospital Services Industry Partner Merritt Hawkins has released a national study exploring this question and takes a deeper dive into how the provider shortage and insured lives factor into the issue.

This survey includes organizations in both Seattle and Yakima, which gives a state perspective to the information. The hope is that this information will provide useful insight to our members on the factors that contribute to the time it takes to integrate new patients in to their system.
