In a recent webinar, Husch Blackwell healthcare attorney Curt Chase presented strategies for integration in the pediatric marketplace. The webinar focused on the Group Practice Subsidiary Model that balances the respective goals and desires of hospitals and community physicians.

Issues discussed included:

  • Increased pressure on hospitals and physician groups related to rising costs, administrative and regulatory burdens, and reimbursement.
  • Community-based pediatric groups’ maintenance of autonomy over practice decision-making and strategy, while also improving revenue and decreasing costs.
  • Creation of networks of both primary-care practitioners and specialists to address population health management, respond to health reform and new payment models, and minimize losses associated with physician practice partnerships.
