Healthcare is increasingly consolidating, and gastroenterology is one of the many specialties with physicians migrating to employed models.
Here are four stats pointing to consolidation in gastroenterology:
28 percent. The growth percentage of private equity gastrointestinal groups in 2021, according to a report jointly published by consulting firm Fraser Healthcare and pharma research firm Spherix Global Insights.
4 percent. The percentage of surveyed gastroenterologists who intend to join management organizations in 2022, according to the same Fraser Healthcare report.
250. The number of gastroenterologists who converted to a management organization format in 2021, according to the Fraser report.
108,700: Number of formerly independent physicians who are now employed by hospitals, private equity firms, insurers or other corporate entities, according to a report from Avalere.
