Factors That Influence Physicians To Assume Leadership Roles: A Focus On Clinical Integration, Jennifer Lynne Jackson

Dissertations

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) drastically altered the healthcare industry in the United States. Along with multiple other directives, the PPACA mandated that physicians and hospitals work together in strategies known as clinical integration.

Data collected from these in-depth interviews related to four research questions: (1) How do physicians make the decision to transition into leadership roles within health systems?; (2) What leadership skills are required for physician leaders within ...
