The Business of the Practice of Medicine

  • R. Martin Johnson


At a family gathering, three generations of physicians are discussing what organized medicine was like in their time. The grandfather, a general practitioner, describes being in solo practice, taking care of a community. The father, a surgeon, describes the independence that existed for him earlier in his practice, and his ability to make decisions and move forward. The daughter, an internist, is working for a health maintenance organization (HMO), and describes her role as a case manager.
