Financial challenges, particularly in medical practices, are consistently ranked the top concern for hospitals today. These challenges range from minimizing losses to assuring that billings are properly captured to support physician payments. The nexus of these challenges lies in the obligations defined through physician contracts. It is common to have a lack of clarity related to the interpretation and expectations of activities considered revenue-generating for contractual purposes versus those that may be in violation of government regulations and reimbursement guidelines.
Consistency, transparency, and standardization are critical elements to properly manage expectations and minimize risk when dealing with physician compensation matters.

Specific scenarios often found in employing physicians will be reviewed and options discussed.
This 60-minute enlightening session presented by experts Charlotte Kohler and Linda Pilla will provide key “takeaways” including operational best practices, specific considerations when evaluating the physician compensation-reimbursement link, and questions that hospitals and providers should ask regarding their compensation and reimbursement models.
