How practicing physicians are adjusting to managed care

How practicing physicians are adjusting to managed care

Physician Executive 20(9): 20-21

Managed care is here to stay. In fact, for the foreseeable future, health care will become increasingly more managed each year. The purpose of this article is to help physician leaders and executives understand how clinicians are reacting and adjusting to managed care. Those of us who are doing primarily management activities have our own set of problems and adjustments. Sometimes we can be insensitive to the problems that physicians who are primarily treating patients can have as a result of managed care. Health care executives who are managing physicians or attempting to influence their behavior must attempt to understand clinicians' feelings, reactions, and coping mechanisms.
