With the changing pressures brought on by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the inevitable reimbursement reductions, it comes as no surprise that health systems continue to maximize efforts to grow physician networks to preserve their patient base.
The 2013 HealthLeaders Media Physician-Hospital Alignment Survey results unveil that a staggering 87% of respondents anticipate an increase in their organization's employed physician base within the next 36 months. This is a significant 16-point rise compared to last year's survey. At the same time, 70% of respondents anticipate their organization's number of independent physicians to decrease over the next three years.
