The Collision of Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness in Physician Compensation Arrangements: An Exploration of Recent Trends, Industry Guidance and Developing Best Practices, Part III (Intermediate/ Advanced)- On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 02/07/2018

Time: 90 minutes
Session Format: On Demand Recording

Compensation processes are only as strong as their implementation and recent enforcement actions have highlighted the dangers of establishing, but then failing to consistently follow a physician compensation process.  This webinar will focus on the importance of developing a systematic compensation process that appropriately integrates legal, finance, compliance, management, and business line leaders to support informed decision-making.   Our panelists will discuss emerging contracting  processes, documentation guidelines, approval requirements, and other developing best practices that healthcare organizations may adopt to streamline their process. Highlights of the webinar will include:

  • Customary roles of health care departments (e.g., finance, compliance, etc.) in physician compensation and contracting processes.
  • Development of parameters and thresholds that may trigger departmental involvement.  
  • Distinguishing the roles of legal and finance when establishing financial terms, and when documenting fair market value and commercial reasonableness.
  • Determining which steps in the process can (or should) be carried out under the attorney-client privilege.
