    More physicians leaving private practices






    NEW YORK, June 14 (UPI) -- A survey by Accenture indicates more U.S. physicians are selling their private practices to work at larger healthcare systems.

    By 2013, less than one-third of U.S. physicians are expected to remain in private practice and patients may increasingly find that being treated by physicians in private, small practice settings may be a thing of the past.

    "Physicians tell the survey that they are increasingly attracted to the benefits offered by hospital-based employment opportunities, which include: relief from administrative responsibilities; greater access to leading healthcare information technology tools, facilities and equipment; and a more manageable work week and stability."

    There seems to be a huge disconnect between the contents of the article and the OP.

    I think that when he said you could keep your doctor, it was obviously implied that you couldn't force your doctor to continue to provide you service whenever and wherever is most convenient for YOU, if he doesn't want to.

    If the doctor chooses to do something else, that's his business and it's tough **** for you. If we're worried about the number of doctors leaving the practice, we should build more medical schools. That is the biggest bottleneck in our health care system right now. We have an artificial shortage of doctors, thanks to the AMA monopoly on labor.

    Not at all. See when you make a law that intentionally drives certain costs, and slashes others in the name of "the Greater Good" then you force docs to make decisions like this because they can't afford their practices, and the tools to make them successful. This is only the first step in downgrading America's health care.

    What? No way! It's all Obama's fault. We're not going to have any doctors anymore and we're all going to die!

    It looks like they are working for hospitals or other larger providers instead. So you still have access to your doctor.

    Why is it a downgrade in America's health care if some private practices consolidate into hospitals? It seems that you've read the initial article, then made several logical leaps without connecting the dots for us.

    Oh, you'll have doctors. Just not good ones.

    We'll all be relegated to "the clinic".

    If anything, one would think they would have better access to diagnostic equipment.
