Practical Strategies and Legal Models for Engaging Physicians

Enhance physician engagement and improve outcomes using 21st century legal models and financial collaboration strategies

As healthcare economics squeeze physician and hospital reimbursement and as consumer and regulatory pressures increase, physicians and healthcare executives must seek new ways to work together effectively to provide more coordinated, cost-effective, quality care. This seminar will present specific, field-tested communication and financial collaboration strategies and contemporary legal models used by hospitals and physicians to align mission, vision and values with practicing physicians, increase revenues, decrease expenses, improve clinical outcomes and remain compliant with current laws and regulations.

You'll Learn:

  • Apply insights from practicing physicians to improve clinical priority setting and physician-physician and hospital-physician communication.
  • Identify 10 practical steps to engage physicians and enhance hospital-physician collaboration.
  • Gain a better understanding of the work environment, areas of expertise and challenges of physicians and how they differ from those of healthcare executives.
  • Discover the spectrum of physician-hospital collaborative financial opportunities for employed and independent physicians and pitfalls to avoid.
  • Implement new strategies, tactics, financial incentives and tools to balance performance risk with utilization risk.

Presented by:

Kenneth H. Cohn, MD, FACS and Peter A. Pavarini, JD
