Medical Group Governance: Clarifying Expectations.
This study investigates the issues surrounding Medical Group Practices and its need to continually clarify and reinforce governance structures as a direct result of multiple stakeholder involvement. These stakeholders include hospitals, insurers, practice management companies, and physicians. Many individuals contend "ownership" in the practice therefore clarifying expectations and establishing formal policies between these parties, and those responsible for the financial well being of the practice, are of paramount importance to medical group management. This study has recently been submitted to the Journal of the Medical Group Management Association.
