The Intake Newsletter, Chart of the Week March 30, 2024

Tebra's Independent Healthcare vs. Corporate and Health System-Based Providers Survey found that — unlike larger corporate or public health systems — independent practices prioritize personalized care. And the benefits of that for patients with independent providers are clear: 

  • 65% of patients say they have a more personal relationship with their providers
  • 53% of patients feel the quality of care is higher with independent providers
  • 38% say appointment availability is better

Discover the results of Tebra's research, which highlight the significant challenges doctors face, including staffing shortages, administrative burdens, and growing competition from corporate entities — as well as practice owners’ optimism and commitment to personalized care that suggest a hopeful outlook despite today’s challenges.
