Consolidating medical groups into large-scale physician practices is the wave of the future and will ultimately increase patient access to healthcare.

Advantages of large-scale groups include:
  • Capital to invest in the latest medical equipment
  • Input into the design of insurance programs
  • Ability to define how patient costs will be financed
  • Increased market share in key service lines (orthopedics, cardiology, etc.)
