Putting the Horse Behind the Cart: Understanding and Identifying Key Operational Challenges to Inform the Structuring of Physician/Hospital Arrangements

[02/23/2015 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM]


Over the past several years, hospitals and physicians have sought to align with one another using both traditional and more progressive models. In structuring these arrangements, counsel may typically show skill and confidence in developing and having the parties agree to such mutually beneficial models only to see the arrangements eventually fall apart due to faulty or failed implementation and/or operational efforts. These undesirable results can be avoided by a basic understanding of common operational issues that, when addressed in the structuring of the arrangement, may lead to smoother transitions and closer alignment between the parties. This webinar will address and discuss operational issues associated with both simple and more complex physician/hospital arrangements and what steps those structuring these arrangements can take to avoid them upon implementation.
