CAH Webinar Series - Physician Compensation Models in the Critical Access Hospital

Webinar Description:
Let's face it, determining physician compensation is a challenge at best. The days of simple guaranteed compensation models are gone. Now, facilities find themselves attempting to balance the needs of the provider (i.e., fair and dependable compensation) with the needs of the facility (i.e., stable and reliable providers that are appropriately incentivized to produce the desired patient outcomes and financial results). It becomes more difficult in the critical access hospital setting as the facility attempts to recruit and retain providers in the rural setting under a variety of payment models (i.e., rural health clinics, provider based clinics and freestanding clinics).

This session will cover the various models being employed by critical access hospitals to engage, retain and reward their providers. This will include discussions related to salary, production, quality and risk compensation. We will also explore strategies for compensating providers for on-call, medical directorships and other administrative functions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify current physician compensation issues
  • Develop strategies to improve Medicare reimbursement of physician compensation costs
