Updated AMA Resource “Competing in the Marketplace” is Now Available

The American Medical Association (AMA) has issued an updated version of “Competing in the Marketplace: How physicians may increase their value in the health care market through medical practice integration.”

This resource provides an overview of the integration options that are available to physicians, which range from mergers to a wide variety of other contractual arrangements. 

Some form of physician integration may be one of the best means through which physicians in solo practice or small groups may take advantage of opportunities as well as face challenges resulting from and independent of the Affordable Care Act.

This resource also discusses possible antitrust issues and how to manage the risks associated with them through types of arrangements that are acceptable under antitrust laws, as those laws are currently interpreted.
