Solutions for Medical Practices

Thinking about joining a Hospital System? Read this first.

You are an independent practice or group and facing increasing costs and the need to develop an infrastructure to keep up with today's changing reimbursement environment.
 
What do you do?
 
One option a number of independent practices and groups look at is affiliation with a hospital system. The question you face is "To Join or Not To Join"?
 
It is not a decision to take lightly. As a practice administrator, you are responsible for helping keep the practice moving forward amid the storm of changes. 
  • What are the right questions to ask?
  • What have other practices in this situation done?
  • What does affiliation mean with this particular hospital system?
  • What benefits do we receive through the affiliation?
  • What are the drawbacks of affiliation?
  • How will our practice culture and work environment be affected?
 
One right answer that is obvious, don't do this alone. Work with your physicians and staff. Research online. If you have the means, look for an outside resource to help. Leverage your state and national associations. They have a wealth of information and also can put you in touch with others that have gone through the same situation.
 
Your peers are also often the best resource. They can share their experiences and most importantly what they felt they got right and what they felt they did wrong.
 
State and local associations exist to support you, make sure you use them.
