Physician practices are struggling to maintain their independence, with many opting to sell their practices to private equity or health systems. For those wishing to maintain their independence, it is critically important that they understand opportunities for growth, successful partnerships and joint ventures, and that they know how to maximize and maintain the value of their key assets (physician, patients, and data). This webinar will describe several innovative business models and strategies for physicians to maintain their independence. Attendees will also receive sample provisions and checklists to help them advise their clients on these models and legal issues associated therewith.
