Outsourcing of physician talent is not just for the ED anymore. From the rise of hospitalists to anesthesia and beyond, companies with hundreds of physicians under contract are expanding their relationships with hospitals as goals for quality, patient safety, and throughput become more critical to maximizing reimbursement.

It sounds like reinvention of the Medical Staff organization, but this time they are supposed to cooperate and collaborate. But nothing here sounds like its good for the patient, though i am sure it is good for the hospitals and the doctors. My very recent reports form patients in widely disparate sites, Burlington VT and Austin TX is that the system remains chaotic, and patients still do not know who is their doctor, seldom see their doctor in hospital, and communication between and amongst doctors is still as terrible as ever.
