About the practice profitability index
The Practice Profitability Index — a survey of more than 5,000 physicians — provides an annual window into the issues affecting the financial and operational health of physician practices across the US. It serves as a barometer of the current state of physician practices and provides insight into physician outlooks on the year ahead.
This year’s PPI revealed room for cautious optimism, with the share of physicians forecasting a negative profitability trend declining year over year. It also showed that, while respondents with positive projections still represent the smallest segment, physicians across the board are investing in practice operations to counter continued regulatory challenges, financial pressures, and administrative burdens.
