Webinar: Employment And Telemedicine Arrangements Between Hospitals And Practitioners: Compliance, Contractual, Reimbursement and Medical Staff Considerations
December 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
As the health care reimbursement and regulatory environment continues to move toward value-based care, clinical integration, collaborative and innovative efforts, hospitals are increasingly arranging for services by telemedicine as well as directly employing practitioners (physicians as well as advanced practice clinicians). These arrangements commonly can raise a host of issues including compliance implications and may involve structural changes to the medical staff (and thus also to the medical staff bylaws). This presentation will provide a clear practical approach for handling the trickiest thorniest aspects of employment and telemedicine arrangements between hospitals and practitioners.
- Understand the current and predicted legal parameters applicable to hospital employment of physicians and advanced practice clinicians.
- Understand the challenges posed by telemedicine arrangements and potential solutions.
- Understand the potential implications for the medical staff and the bylaws, including an algorithm for deciding whether a demonstrated problem with competence or conduct by an employed practitioner should be handled via employment or medical staff process.
- Learn practical tips about the “Dos” and “Don’ts” of employment agreements.
