Educational report by McKesson Revenue ManagementSolutions reviews how practice acquisitions are a growing imperative for financial leaders. Hospital leaders increasingly view physician employment as a strategic necessity that can better position their organizations to meet an anticipated shift toward outcome-based payments, the expected requirements of the reform-driven Accountable Care Organization’s (ACO) delivery model, and physician recruitment efforts made by competing hospitals.

Increasing costs – coupled with flat or declining reimbursements – are exerting pressure on physician incomes.

Effective management of physician billing is therefore essential to the hospital’s success.
