Dealing with the physician-hospital divide

Share this:


A Bain & Co. survey, “Front Line of Healthcare Report 2015,” of 632 physicians across different specialties and 100 hospital procurement administrators in the U.S., “reveals┬áthe extent of the divide” between physicians and health-system executive suites, reports Fierce Healthcare.


“At the heart of the issue is how healthcare is paid for, how physicians make decisions and deliver care, and how organizations purchase and use drugs and devices…. Tension between healthcare organizations and their physicians could lead to a slowdown or reversal of physician employment trends and battles over which devices physicians can use and which drugs they can prescribe.”
