Independent medical practices have a unique opportunity in healthcare today. Many people view independent practices as the best place to receive quality care. In addition to feeling more personalized, the small practice setting can provide care at a lower cost and produce better patient outcomes—for example, fewer emergency room visits. However, across the U.S. healthcare system, the independent practice is under the greatest regulatory, financial and workload pressures.
To gather first-hand insight into the current state of independent practices, in January of 2019 Kareo conducted a national survey, spanning general practice, family practice, internal medicine/primary care and more than 50 different specialties. Results from the survey unpack the factors impacting independent practices today, including:
- Rising healthcare costs and challenges to private practices
- Practice priorities and challenges in delivering care, getting paid and patient engagement
- Reducing operational overhead to improve care
- The role of technology in supporting practice success
You have the opportunity to get the first look at the results of this seminal industry report. Join us for an informative webinar: The State of the Independent Practice Industry Report.
Spoiler alert: Despite the array of challenges we've mentioned, more than 60% of respondents expect their practice will grow in 2019 with less than one-third expecting to stay the same, and only 11% thinking their practices will shrink. The independent practice is alive and well!
