Important Guidelines for Selecting Quality Metrics In Physician Arrangements
November 5, 2021
Changes in the healthcare market have spawned increases in the number and kinds of contractual arrangements organizations make with physicians. Traditional fee-for-service contracts now often exist alongside largely untested, emerging pay-for-performance arrangements. In addition, more physicians are providing multiple services under one agreement which creates additional challenges with “Stacking” compensation components. This puts organizations at risk that their physician compensation valuations and physician contracts may run afoul of regulatory scrutiny or have unintended economic impacts.
