Hospitals and health systems are looking to buy more medical practices to increase outpatient services, reports the Healthcare Value Wire. Plus, Medicare reimburses for certain services at a much higher rate for hospital outpatient departments than for facilities that are not hospital-based, which is fueling this trend.
This is just one area where the healthcare sector is continuing to grow and reorganize. That means the opportunities and obstacles for practice benchmarking are increasing, which will be addressed on July 30 during Benchmarking Medical Practice Performance, with Lori Foley and Tynan Olechny (both PYA GatesMoore). This webinar is Part 7 of BVR’s 2013 Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation.
