Outsourcing work now a norm for physician practices

Effective Apr 21, 2017
Published Apr 21, 2017

The rapid pace of change in healthcare has made it difficult for many practices to keep up with administrative tasks related to billing, claims, EHRs, and quality reporting—prompting many to outsource jobs to third-party vendors. And while most practices try to avoid the expense of farming work out, the complexity of some tasks makes it more efficient and cost-effective to hire an outside vendor rather than risk overwhelming their own employees.

It’s not something that every practice is doing, but it’s becoming more common in an era where burnout rates among physicians are reaching all-time highs, driven in large part by the demands of nonclinical work.
