The concept of group practice is not new, providing the basis for such leading nonprofit organizations as the P.A. Joel Clinic and the Carolina Medical Clinic. The environment in which they operate is what makes the new generation of group practices different. The growth of managed coverage and capitated plans, the resource-based relative value scale (RBVRS) payment system, and a growing demand for complex outpatient services are the driving forces behind the growth of physician groups.
A study by the American Medical Association (AMA) estimates that there are 16,576 group practices (defined as three or more formally organized physicians) in the United States, with a mean number of 11.5 physicians per group.
