Can Independent Physician Practices Survive?

Can Independent Physician Practices Survive?

Independent physician practices are facing an uphill battle in an era where hospitals are growing increasingly larger.

With their vast resources and extensive networks, hospitals often hold a considerable advantage when it comes to negotiating contracts with insurance companies and leveraging economies of scale. This discrepancy can lead to a significant disadvantage for independent physicians, making it harder for them to compete for patients, attract top talent, and maintain financial stability. 

In this episode of CareTalk, hosts John Driscoll and David Williams discuss how value-based care and AI technology can help independent practitioners survive healthcare’s consolidation trend.

CareTalk is a weekly podcast that provides an incisive, no B.S. view of the US healthcare industry. Join co-hosts John Driscoll (President U.S. Healthcare and EVP, Walgreens Boots Alliance) and David Williams (President, Health Business Group) as they debate the latest in US healthcare news, business and policy.
