One would think with all the changes in healthcare nowadays, that private practice is dead. So many doctors are flocking to what they believe is the protection of large networks, our healthcare landscape is changing. What are we losing as this evolution occurs?
With the thriving world of private practice, there are many ill outcomes that begin to govern our society and our healthcare dynamics. For instance, just imagine there are no longer local docs whom you turn to and trust with every member of your family. Just imagine, that all those reasons we become doctors in the first place no longer exist.
What are some of the reasons?
- Provide great care to our patients
- Create our own business – a mini culture so to speak
- Make a good living – thoughts on deservingness
Doctors generally become doctors because we want to care for patients, right. Of course, we do! If you didn’t want to take care of people and make a difference, you never would have made it through medical school. It’s not a walk in the park!
We want to make a difference in the lives of others. Most, if not all of us, believe we can make a difference. For some, that’s a small-town doc who makes house calls. For others, maybe it’s staying late because we know our local mill shuts down at 7 pm. We’re the ones who take care of rusty nail feet, pregnant moms (maybe), strep throat kids and we may even see patients at the local hospital too.
What we aren’t is a conglomerate. We are our own business. We make our own living. However, we choose to do that, we do it our way. But what’s the other way that is overtaking us?
Is Private Practice Really Dead or Can We Change the Landscape?
The healthcare landscape has “forced” many physicians to close shop, for fear of being run out of business. We become corporate robots instead of independent practitioners which is what we set out to be.
So, has the establishment brought us to a halt? Is private practice dead or do you just not know what to do? If the latter is your story and you want to rewrite your story with your own ending, we can help you do that.
So, is private practice dead? Only if you let it be.
