Physician Employment and Medical Staff Matters - Fun Time for HR Directors!

This session will cover the practical, risk management, compliance and reimbursement aspects of employing physicians and will clearly delineate the distinction between the Human Resources director role and the Medical Staff role in a hospital setting.  This presentation will focus on the practical "dos" and don'ts" of hospital employment of physicians and navigating the decision points of handling discipline / corrective action matters through the employment process vs. the medical staff process. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the legal parameters applicable to hospital employment of physicians and how that translates into physician employment negotiating and agreements.
  • Understand how forthcoming changes to the regulatory framework will affect physician - hospital arrangements.
  • Understand the algorithm for deciding whether a demonstrated problem with competence or conduct by an employed practitioner should be handled via employment or medical staff process, including reporting issues.
