Medical Practice Plans at U.S. Medical Schools. A Review of Current Characteristics and Trends. Volume I: Interim Final Report.
Hilles, William C.; Fagan, Sharon K.
The study of medical practice plans describes the structural and operational characteristics of over 60 plans in U.S. medical schools. A documented description of the way the respective clinical faculties conduct their patient care activities is included. The study further establishes a typology based on plan structure and classifies the plans accordingly. The report includes an annotated bibliography on the subject of practice plans; profile matrices, for public and private institutions, displaying plan features relating to structure and governance, mechanics of administration, compensation patterns, income flow and disposition; a rationale for categorizing practice plans, and the actual classification of all plans reviewed; a set of flow diagrams, illustrating for each basic type of plan the source and distribution of all practice plan income; and a discussion of the study's findings and trends since the 1950s. This report covers only the first year of a two-year study. (JMF)
