ever, the former establishes a
deal with all the doctors with-
in the organization. The effi-
ciency the PHO affords the
contracting process will in-
crease Sinai's appeal to third-
party payers, supporters say.
"Negotiating a contract with
the Sinai PHO, which includes
the Sinai facility and 280 physi-
cians, may take two months. To
negotiate a contract with Sinai
and then negotiate contracts
with those 280 physicians indi-
vidually could take two or three
_ years
or
more,"
Mr.
Strauchman said.
"We're offering an opportu-
nity for HMOs and PPOs to ex-
tensively increase their panel
of physicians and also contract
with a large tertiary institution
(like Sinai) by negotiating only
one contract."
Sinai started recruiting
physicians for the PHO in April.
It sent out 500 solicitation pack-
ages, and by mid-June 280 doc-
tors who work at Sinai signed
up. This was 130 more than ad-
ministrators expected.
Supporters say PHOs also
will provide hospitals with a
competitive edge because PHOs
are nonprofit. They can offer
self-funded employers lower
premiums for medical coverage
than for-profit insurers.
But many doctors worry
about the effect PHOs might
have on physician autonomy.
"Philosophically speaking,
this is another step toward the
physicians' loss of control of
their own practices," said
Sinai's Chief of Staff Dr.
Norman Bolton, who is also a
surgeon in private practice.
However, Dr. Bolton said he
is willing to sacrifice some of
his autonomy if it means
putting Sinai in a more com-
petitive position.
"My goal in practice would be
not to be in any of these groups
at all. As more and more physi-
cians belong to these, they will
be at the hospital's mercy be-
