<div>February 9, 2011--The American Medical Association (AMA) has developed a new survey that invites physicians to provide their input on how federal rules and regulations impact their practices. The survey is in response to an executive order issued by President Obama on January 18, which called on all government agencies to complete an analysis of rules that may be ineffective, insufficient, or excessively burdensome. The AMA believes this executive order is an opportunity to reduce physicians' administrative burden.<br><br>Physicians who participate in the survey can select which rules and regulations negatively impact administrative costs, add to the burden of paperwork for their practices, or interfere with patient care.<br></div> <div>The survey is available at <a href="http://www.ama-assn.org/go/regrelief/">www.ama-assn.org/go/regrelief/</a>.<br></div>
