    New physician referral behavior patterns



    Hospitals are buying more and more private clinics and physicians. When they work for their new systems you expect them to refer their patients for investigations or other providers within the realm of the health system that hired them. However many of them stick to their old referral patterns, referring people out to physicians or clinics that belong to competing organizations. How can you change this behavior without breaking Stark Laws?


    I would welcome suggestions of anyone who has dealt with this type of problem.
