I am curious since we are seeing this shift to approaching medicine and the delivery of medical service through a business model, what the opposing arguments are proposing instead? Are they proposing the status quo? Or are they proposing a separate model/system?
significance of the insurance/payor system and ever-decreasing reimbursement rates have played a part?
ethical implications of the provider focus on "medicine as a business" and how providers will prioritize patients and care provided over profits
what you believe have been the driving factors that have led to the development of the healthcare business model?
I also wondered what the general consensus among physicians is in regards to this transition to more of a business model. Do physicians seem to favor this model or are they against it?
any connection to the increasing importance of the 'business of medicine' to physician burnout??
How will providers prioritize patients and care as well as maintain profits?
do you feel that there are challenges that organizations/companies tend to face while not being employed by a hospital?
if they are not employed by them where do they receive coverage?
how do their families receive coverage if their are the main providers for a family.?
How does understanding and optimizing the four components of the healthcare business model contribute to the goal of providing high-quality medical services at affordable prices, and what specific strategies can be employed within each component to achieve this objective?
any difference with physicians with MBA or MPH degree having a better advocacy for patients
providers (physicians) without the added business degree but were just elevated into those managerial positions?
disadvantages or challenges that might be presented to these group practices when they go through a merger with a hospital?
how do you think or did you find any research regarding patient satisfaction that proves this model as being effective?
what are some person incentives that providers may experience when deciding to join a group?
how does this model affect the quality of care the patients receive?
hysicians get more time to spend with their patients, and does this model affect patients’ satisfaction?
Are there any particular physician specialties that are more involved in this type of relationship?
