The volume of activity between medical practices, hospitals and multispecialty groups has certainly increased from the late 1990s. Hospitals are struggling to maintain market share as patient care continues to shift from an inpatient setting to an ambulatory setting. Physicians are tiring of the political bureaucracy of both governmental and private insurance carriers. Solo practitioners and medical groups are joining forces to create large multispecialty groups. All are worried about the impact of health care reform on their business and their patients. Consequently, physicians, hospitals and multispecialty groups are rushing to the table to best position themselves for what’s ahead.
In this seminar, you’ll learn the practical, financial and legal considerations involved when facing the decision to integrate or remain independent. Does integration really provide a platform for reducing costs and increasing efficiencies? What are some of the more popular collaboration and compensation models that are being offered to physicians? Here, you’ll walk away with an overview of the structural models, potential opportunities and necessary development steps for practice, hospital or multispecialty group integration.
