Over the past 20-25 years physicians have found refuge from the complexities of private practice through employment with large health care corporations. This seemed like the logical business move to make, no overhead costs, the staff is provided for you, and a 9-5 schedule. The idea of focusing solely on patient-health and not the bureaucratic side of medicine was ideal. Often times, smaller, private clinics would be bought-out by health care companies which, at the time, seemed like the most appropriate step to improve patient care.
With all the difficulties surrounding the implementation of medicine (predominantly insurance reimbursement), this was an easy way to improve patient and self-care, or so it seemed. There is a new trend emerging in health care (not surprisingly) that shadows physician employment from a long time ago. More physicians are making the decision to go back into private practice, leaving their large corporate “safety net”, but why?
