Edward Kabala commented on the fading out of private practices saying that anxiety about reimbursement reforms, including such things as global payments by Medicare for a bundle of services, is driving doctors to seek employment rather than go it alone.

"These hospital systems are snapping up docs all over the place," he said. "They are trying to lock down their referral sources, and the only way to do that is to employ them. It's the reality today."
