Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Group Practice
Group practice is a type of healthcare delivery model in which a group of healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and other staff, work together to provide care to patients. Group practices can take many forms, including medical practices, clinics, and health systems, and may be owned and operated by the healthcare professionals who work there or by a larger organization.
In a group practice, healthcare professionals may work together to provide a range of services, including diagnosis and treatment of health conditions, preventive care, and ongoing management of chronic conditions. Group practices often have a team-based approach to care, with different healthcare professionals working together to provide comprehensive and coordinated care to patients.
Group practices can offer several advantages, including increased access to care, enhanced coordination of care, and the ability to share resources and expertise. However, they may also face challenges, such as managing the business aspects of the practice and coordinating the schedules and responsibilities of multiple healthcare professionals.
