Survey: 52% of healthcare professionals say Trump will improve the industry

The majority of physicians and practice staff (52 percent) believe a Trump presidency will improve U.S. healthcare, and 48 percent believe a Trump presidency will have a positive financial impact on their practice, according to a new Aprima survey.

More than 300 physicians and practice staff participated in the survey, which was emailed to almost 19,000 healthcare professionals and explores predictions for healthcare under President-elect Donald Trump's administration.

Here are three other survey findings.

1. Sixty-two percent of survey respondents anticipate changes to some aspects of the ACA, but less than one-third expect the health law to be repealed in its entirety.

2. Fifty-nine percent of survey respondents are optimistic that physician practices will experience a decrease in regulatory burdens, according to the survey.

3. However, survey respondents were divided in terms of how patient access to care will be impacted. Thirty-six percent of survey respondents expect access to become more difficult, and 36 percent predict no significant impact to accessibility.
