'Mega' Pediatric Group Allows Doctors to Focus on Patient Care as the Business Side of Private Practice Becomes More Difficult to Sustain
Date:12/9/2008

LONG ISLAND, N.Y., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Like most pediatricians, Fatema Meah, M.D. became a doctor because she loves caring for children and working with their families. However, when she entered private practice, she was frustrated with how much of her time was being consumed by paperwork and billing issues. Two months ago, she and her partner became part of an unconventional solution that has allowed her to return her attention to her patients -- Allied Pediatrics of New York, PLLC (APNY), a "mega" group with 70 pediatricians in 18 different pediatric offices throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties (http://www.alliedpeds.com).

Dr. Meah is not alone in her frustrations with private practice. A November 2008 report from The Physicians' Foundation says that nearly half of all the nation's primary care physicians plan to stop practicing or reduce the number of patients they see. The reported reasons for dissatisfaction include "increased time dealing with non-clinical paperwork, difficulty receiving reimbursement and burdensome government regulations."

APNY addresses these critical issues with a business model that has been successful in corporate America for decades: gather forces in order to increase buying and negotiating power while turning non-clinical burdens over to administrative experts. Pediatricians, in particular, rely entirely on commercial insurers to provide compensation for the general office visits that make up the bulk of their practices. Reimbursement rates have remained virtually unchanged since 2001, and some medicines, including vaccines, cost the pediatrician more than they receive in compensation. Add to this the rising cost of malpractice insurance and the expenses of running a business, and many private practice pediatricians must take a loss in order to deliver the best care.
