Frontiers of Health Services Management;Fall2007, Vol. 24 Issue 1, p31
The author reflects over the strategies to employ physicians towards a better alignment of hospital-physician relations in healthcare services. He argues that the demographics of the physicians that are admitting to our hospitals are changing, and hospitals and systems need to adjust to these changes. He suggests that just as all healthcare is local, so are the tactics for solutions.
