When it comes to medical care facilities, they need to be designed in such a way that it is easy to change things around when necessary. Adaptability is the name of the game, especially as a medical practice grows and gains more patients.
Needs and demands change, and what worked well before may not work as well now. This fact can apply not just to the space and facility itself, but also to the equipment, technology, and even to how the facility is staffed and managed. Quality of care is the most important thing, and a facility that can adapt to provide care the most effective care is a facility that will continue to grow and prosper.
For several years, the medical industry has been facing a major shift from private to group practices. Privately owned practices are increasingly giving way to group practices directed by larger corporations or to new providers aiming to offer services directly to patients — and primary care physicians are leading the trend.
There are several reasons why this shift is occurring; these include decreased profitability, operational challenges arising from reform efforts, and a drive for efficiency. Declining reimbursements and an increase in time spent on administration — not to mention the expense of integrating and maintaining electronic systems — are making the private practice less viable. But there are also larger market forces at play.
