A few weeks ago I wrote about the growing trend of physicians being employed directly by hospitals rather than in private practices, and how this trend impacts medical device opportunities.  Last week the Wall Street Journal published an article “Medical-Device Firms Lose Clout As Hospitals Buy Practices” which is well worth reading.  This week, PWC released a report “Health Reform is Driving Hospitals and Physicians Together.”  Have you analyzed the impact of this trend on your medical device market over the next few years?
