Physicians leaving practices for health system employment
By 2013, less than a third of physicians will be in private practice, electing instead for employment with larger health systems, according to a new report released by Accenture Health. The rate of independent physicians employed by health systems will grow by an annual rate of 5 percent over three years, according to the report. Burdened by administrative responsibilities of their private practices, physicians are increasingly attracted to the resources that health systems offer, as well as manageable work weeks and job stability, notes the report.
