Is your health care organization prepared to effectively manage the compensation of your physicians and advanced practice providers in a strategic, efficient and regulatory-compliant way?

The rapidly changing health care environment has shifted the way in which organizations are aligning with, engaging and compensating physicians and advanced practice providers (APPs).

To help manage the transition from volume to value in ways that are both strategic and compliant with complex regulations, SullivanCotter offers an annual physician and APP compensation seminar, delivered through presentations, discussions, and interactive exercises and case studies.

This seminar will address challenges related to contemporary physician and APP compensation practices, transitioning to team-based compensation strategies, evolving issues in fair market value and commercial reasonableness and the valuation of physician practices.

Questions that will be addressed include:

  • What types of compensation plans are used to help shift compensation from volume to value?
  • What are the key market trends in physician compensation today and what compensation and benefits practices are effective in this transitional environment?
  • How much are organizations currently paying for quality and what types of quality metrics are being used by leading health care organizations?
  • What are key benchmarks for measuring physician compensation, productivity, quality and benefits?
  • What are the key regulations affecting physician compensation?
  • What steps should be taken to ensure physician compensation plans are consistent with fair market value and commercial reasonableness?
  • How do the changes in physician compensation reimbursement affect fair market value and commercial reasonableness assessments?
  • What impact does the Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act (MACRA) have on physician reimbursement today and tomorrow, and what should be done to prepare and align physician compensation programs?
  • What are the most important steps and strategies to consider during a physician compensation plan design process?
  • What are the current market forces driving acquisitions?
  • What are the most common approaches for practice valuations, including fair market value best practices and pitfalls?
  • What are the risks that need to be considered when developing a practice valuation strategy?
  • How are organizations addressing the recruitment and retention challenges associated with the growing APP workforce? How is the APP role evolving?
  • What are the compensation trends and strategies for engaging this critical and growing group of providers?
  • How should APP compensation vary based on roles and/or practice settings?
