Chuck Peck, MD, FACP, president and CEO of Health Inventures, and Marshall Maran, senior vice president of Health Inventures, presented the webinar "Critical Guidance for Hospital Integration of Independent Physicians."
There are three main factors driving the integration of independent physicians in hospitals: demographics, including the increasing and aging U.S. population; healthcare reform, including both regulatory and technology mandates; and economic and financial circumstances, including the cost pressures of running a medical practice and decreasing reimbursements. The predominant method of integration is employment. However, that is not the only option.
Maran discussed three of several alternatives to employing physicians for hospitals to integrate with physicians that wish to remain independent. "Each is viable," Mr. Maran said. "The key is making sure you can appropriately integrate each one of the options together to achieve the common goals of the organization."
