Opening Discussion Topic:
Thanks to hospitals and systems gobbling up medical practices across the country, for the first time there are more employed physicians (47.4%) than physician owners (45.9%)*. In a Fee-for-Service world, where “volume” rewarded both the hospitals and their employed physicians, this worked out fine. But, as the government and health plans are increasingly moving to paying for “value, physician compensation is frequently “misaligned.” What to do?
During our Opening Members’ Discussion, we’ll look to hear your experience responding to changing compensation systems – including applying Lessons Learned from your healthcare sector, or even other industries and/or regions. Then, our Featured Member – and Host, Jeff Johnson, Western U.S. Market Leader and Healthcare Partner at Wipfli, will “introduce us” to the firm, and share some of the major trends their clients are experiencing nationally – including financial and operational barriers to hospitals’ fully integrating with their employed physicians, and challenges creating hospital-physician “alignment” as payers move to “Fee for Value.”
And, when you RSVP, please alert us to any other Important Updates, Issues, or Questions you have for the Group, so we can be sure to address them!
