The New Business of Healthcare

Webinar Rebroadcast (May 22, 2013)

As more and more physicians appear to be moving toward employment with hospital systems, will independent medical practice soon be a thing of the past?

This webinar reviews Accenture’s findings, and discusses the strategies that some physicians are currently using to retain their independence. Topics covered include:

  • Demise of the independent doctor: hype or reality?
  • Physician employment trends today
  • New business models for a new era in healthcare
  • Key drivers for the future
