Abstract

The private practice of psychiatry is being transformed by the new economics of medical care. Patients are paying more out-of-pocket for necessary care (demand-side cost sharing), and health care providers are being asked to assume part of the risk of treatment through prospective payment (supply-side cost sharing). Specific survival strategies for psychiatrists in private practice include development of a balanced practice, expansion of referral networks, participation in alternative delivery systems such as health maintenance organizations and preferred provider organizations, active involvement in utilization and claims review, participation in outcome studies, and expansion of patient care advocacy and community involvement.
