75% of newly-hired doctors to be hospital employees 2014

This is a nugget from the new Merritt Hawkins physician revenue survey — that I blogged about in an earlier post.  Merritt Hawkins is a physician recruiting firm, now part of AMN Healthcare.  They include a bar chart showing the trend from 2004 to 2014 (projected) in the percentage of their own physician search assignments that involve physician employment by hospitals.  This was 11 percent in 2004 — took a big bump up in 2007 to 43 percent — and was 63 percent in 2012.  Merritt Hawkins projects that in 2014, fully three-quarters of newly hired physicians will be employed by hospitals.

Source: The white paper is: 2011 Physician Inpatient/Outpatient Revenue Survey.  Irving, TX: Merritt Hawkins, 2013.  Click here for full text: http://www.merritthawkins.com/uploadedFiles/MerrittHawkings/Clients/mha2013revsurveyPreview.pdf  NOTE: On the day that I am posting this (6/7/13), only a PARTIAL copy of the full text is posted online.  If you want the full report, email phil.miller@amnhealthcare.com.  He expects to have the complete white paper posted online within a few weeks.  Posted by AHA Resource Center, (312) 422-2050, rc@aha.org
