WASHINGTON DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- SEPTEMBER 20, 2023: In 2016, in partnership with the Physicians Foundation, Health Affairs launched an article series on the "Practice of Medicine," focusing on important health policy issues affecting physicians. The effort has produced a comprehensive collection of policy research in the field.

A recurring topic in the Practice of Medicine series, and in health policy circles generally, is the question of how integration, consolidation, and ownership changes of physician practices are affecting the nation's health care system, the people who work in it, and the patients it serves. Researchers and policymakers have begun to look at what the data tell us, from the impact of private equity on the workforce to what hospital-physician integration means for patient outcomes and physician compensation.

On Wednesday, September 27, please join Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil for an online forum, "How The Ownership and Structure of Health Care Entities Affect Clinicians & Patients," focusing on recent work featured in the Practice of Medicine series and broader issues confronting medical professionals.
