We have seen an enormous consolidation in medical practices across the industry in the last three years. Many practices are being bought out by hospital systems in preparation for laying the groundwork for accountable care organizations and for building market share in the new value-based purchasing environment.
But rest assured, the independent practice is alive and well — there are practice models available that allow physicians to operate independently, while coming together as one entity to reap the benefits of cost efficiency. One way physicians can reinvent their practices, is to become a “super group.”
