Helping Independent Physicians Stay That Way

Marni James of the Association of Independent Doctors explains how physician practices can remain independent in today’s environment.

Across the country, hospitals are buying up independent practices left and right. For many reasons, the notion of being employed is becoming a tempting possibility for practitioners. For patients however, consolidation is driving up healthcare costs and compromising quality of care. It also has robbed physicians of their autonomy.

In the latest Physicians Practice podcast, Marni Jameson, the executive director of the Association of Independent Doctors, joins managing editor Gabriel Perna to talk about this trend. Jameson will be a featured speaker at the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Annual Conference, held in Nashville, from Oct. 11-14, 2015.

Jameson will be a featured speaker of “Helping Independent Doctors Stay That Way,” a session at the MGMA15 conference in Nashville on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015 at 1:15-2:15 p.m.
