The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the healthcare sector’s move toward value-based reimbursements have created a favorable environment for hospital-based physician staffing companies to consolidate and grow even larger, Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. says.

Ron Neysmith, a senior analyst at Moody’s Corporate Finance Group, says the physician staffing sector has grown by more than 10% annually over the past four years. That pace is expected to continue, he says, as hospitals embrace outsourcing to streamline operations and create efficiencies.
