Can Independent Medical Practices Survive?


 
 
EHR Scope, LLC
PRLog - May 22, 2014 - PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- EHR Scope LLC announced today its concern about the survival of independent medical practices and the effect this will have on patient care. Independent practices are faced with increased government requirements, mounting costs, new reimbursement models, declining reimbursement, and increased complexity brought on by the Affordable Care Act. These factors combine, leading to increased administrative duties and reduced clinician - patient time.  Years ago independent practice was the norm. Physicians were free to practice medicine in a way they saw fit.  Practices that understood their patients delivered practical results and applied basic business principles to the practice. While some advanced, others did not. Years later, independent practices are faced with a population that thrives on consumerism and quick results, combined wth government and insurance company interference in medical care. What is the independent practice to do? Early retirement or becoming employed by a hospital or physician network are considerations.  A growing number of physicians are feeling pressured to give up on private practice, while some are seeking other options for survival.

One option is to incorporate a "Smart” electronic health record, practice management, and medical billing system that has streamlined clinical documentation, care coordination, administrative support, and revenue capture. Such systems eliminate the brunt of administrative and patient coordination tasks, continually update regulations and coding, permitting clinicians to stay current and allowing physicians to run a lean, profitable practice that is focused on patient care. There are options that are affordable.  A “Smart” system, when viewed and utilized as a high function tool to develop a thriving business that truly helps people, can make a significant difference to the survival of the independent practice. Healthcare can and should be about clinicians, staff, and patient quality of life.

When enough clinicians take the time to consider the options they will discover it is not only possible to survive, it is possible to thrive as an independent practice! Patients will continue to have a choice between independent or corporate driven provider health care and will likely prefer high quality independent care.
