I have an extensive network of contacts in both academic and nonacademic GI practices. I am trying to understand the best business model of practice that will yield highest value cancer prevention. For example, does a fully employed health system model (Kaiser for example) yield better outcomes or higher value compared to a system with affiliated specialty groups?

If independent practices hope to survive, they must demonstrate added value to a health system that has the option of fully employing specialists. CRC prevention is an excellent model to test these questions
