from RevCycle Intelligence
Primary care practices that employ more physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other non-physician providers have greater healthcare revenue and productivity, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) recently reported. In its 2018 MGMA DataDive Cost and Revenue report, the industry group found that practices with a non-physician provider to physician ratio of 0.41 or greater reported higher expenses. However, the practices also had more revenue after operating costs compared to practices with provider ratios of 0.20 or lower.
