A majority of physicians who practice in groups with five or fewer physicians believe the technological and staffing requirements to function in a value-based reimbursement system will force them to join integrated delivery networks or larger groups, according to a Black Book survey.

The survey collected responses from 1,300 physician groups, 67 percent of which said they do not have the technology, capital or staffing required to comply with the Merit-based Incentive Payment System set in place by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act.

Eighty-nine percent of solo physician practices said they expect to minimize Medicare volumes so they don’t have to submit the required quality and cost performance reports, according to the survey.
