Physician Organizations

Innovative Strategies for the Health of Your Organization

​Today’s physicians and physician organizations face scrutiny from all angles. Shifting payment models from fee-for-service to value-based care, the evolution of digital health and telemedicine technology, and industry consolidation — all create a volatile business and regulatory environment. In this climate, physician organizations require innovative, strategic counsel, with deep experience to match. Mintz’s team is intimately familiar with the dynamics impacting physicians. We will help you meet these challenges and grow beyond them.

Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz helped University Physicians, Inc. practice plans that serve the Warren Alpert School of Medicine of Brown University (SOM) and Rhode Island Hospital reorganize as Brown Physicians, Inc. (BPI). The affiliation created a close relationship among SOM, BPI, and the six faculty practice plans.
