What does this research indicate about trends for physician group practice? Are doctors likely to practice alone these days, with one partner, or in larger groups?

Unit III Case Study

 

 

Go to http://www.hschange.org, and search for the article title “Physicians Moving to Mid-Sized, Single-Specialty Practices.”

 

 

Part 1: What does this research indicate about trends for physician group practice? Are doctors likely to practice alone these days, with one partner, or in larger groups? Explain the trend you are seeing in this data. Why is it happening?

 

Part 2: Study the trends reported here for doctors in solo or duo practice versus for those in larger group practice. Pay special attention to the Supplementary Table at the end of the report, which breaks this data down into physician specialties. Which types of specialties are most likely to continue in solo or duo practice? Which specialties are showing the strongest trends in forming groups? Why do you feel that this is the case?
