Health Leaders Media

A time of “massive flux” from payment uncertainty leaves physician practices in a reductionist mode these days, according to Medical Group Management Association – American College of Medical Practice Executives President Susan Turney, MD. She shared her observations with attendees at the MGMA-ACMPE conference in San Antonio, Texas this week.

Doctors are trying to avoid red ink by significantly delaying delivery on new equipment, reducing charity care, and trimming clinical staff, Turney says.
