ARLINGTON, Va. — In a Healio exclusive, Jim Leavitt, MD, FASGE, director of clinical quality and outcomes at Gastro Health in Miami, discusses the trends, benefits and risks of consolidation in gastroenterology practice.
“We need to consolidate — it’s our obligation to lead health care reform, and it would be difficult for us to do that without consolidation,” Leavitt said. “Our role is to be the best advocates for our patients, so I think the benefits are significant. This would benefit our practice, our partners, our profession and, most importantly, our patients.”
