The 100 Year Shift? Part 4 On Why Physicians Still Have Plenty Of Reasons To Remain Independent

"After looking at the proposed buy-out
contract, I need some of this gas...."
The e-CareManagement series on the 100 Year Shift continues with this latest post, "The Practice of Medicine: from Marcus Welby to ???"

Readers will recall that this is the 4th in a series of blog posts that argues that physicians and health insurers are destined to become partners in the drive to increase quality and reduce unnecessary health care costs.  While the common wisdom is that physicians and hospitals will aggregate into large regionally dominant provider organizations, your Disease Management Care Blog and the talented and insightful Vince Kuraitis have a contrarian point of view.

Think we're wrong?  Keep in mind that we've gotten a lot of supportive comments and invitations to review this in greater detail in some national forums.  If you think we're all wet, tell us why.  We need to learn from you.
