3.) Hospitalists in Community Hospitals

Hospitalists, as more than one CEO has noted, are the future in acute-care hospitals. As health care has evolved - with family practice physicians mostly engaged in office-based practices, internal medicine specialists largely removed from caring for inpatients, and critical care and emergency medicine physicians taking specialized roles - hospitalists increasingly began to fill an important niche: the general care of hospitalized patients. In this white paper, you'll hear how different community hospitals have structured their hospitalist programs, their future plans for such programs, or their reasons for not pursuing such programs.

4.) Physician Compensation Fails To Keep Up With Inflation

The physician compensation of 60 percent of polled specialties failed to keep up with inflation in 2006, according to the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) ‘Physician Compensation and Production Survey: 2007 Report Based on 2006 Data’.

The report also said that physicians – especially those in primary care – are working harder and their production increased at a faster rate than their compensation.
