In September 2016, CDW Healthcare surveyed 200 chronic patients, defined as those who have been to the doctor six or more times in the past year (includes visits to any primary physician or specialist, excluding dental care) and 200 physicians and physician assistants at U.S. healthcare organizations/facilities, both ambulatory and inpatient, to compare and contrast perceptions and perspectives when it comes to patient engagement. The margin of error for both surveys is ±6.9% at a 95% confidence level.
