Physician-Led Hospitals as a Tool to Address Consolidation
Health competition thought leaders argue in a new paper that physician-led hospitals can be used to address consolidation:
“POHs present an opportunity to inject more competition into patient/consumer markets, U.S. payor markets, and markets for physician services. Competition in these markets is vital for reducing costs and improving quality. This not only benefits healthcare consumers—which eventually includes all of us, but also taxpayers providing publicly-financed health benefits that cover nearly one in two Americans. It also benefits physicians through increased competition for their services and greater opportunities for entrepreneurship and innovation in patient care.”
