The article focuses on the business-type decisions of health care managers or executives, who have a great deal of influence on how their practice is structured. While having this influence is nice, with this influence comes responsibility. Like any executive or manager, one has a responsibility to try to implement the best strategies for the practice as a representative of the owners. This will help the practice be successful and keep its best physicians happy to be in the health care organization. At no time could this be more important, given the state of medical economics.
