Abstract

Many hospitals are actively pursuing strategies that integrate physicians into their management and governance structures. Despite expectations that these strategies improve hospital efficiency, empirical studies have failed to provide consistent evidence that physician involvement in hospital management and governance improves hospital efficiency. This article examines factors that may moderate the relationship between physician participation in hospital management and governance and hospital efficiency.
