Independence vs. Employment - The Ever-Shifting Landscape

Webinar & Hard Copy Book Package

Recording will be available within 2 days of the live event

Activity Overview:

Hospital employed physicians are realizing that hospital employment isn’t as secure as they were led to believe. Driven by COVID, ownership changes and many other factors, they have been hit with compensation reductions, terminations and stricter non-competes while learning that the autonomy they were promised doesn’t easily reconcile with being an employee.

Independent physicians, on the other hand, are finding that private practice has never been more challenging and complex. Between dominant payors, narrow networks, COVID and other government mandates, private practice isn’t a panacea either.

For those physicians contemplating a change, how do you decide if the grass on other side of the fence will be greener?  This presentation identifies and examines the factors to be considered by physicians contemplating such a change. While these factors vary widely by market and competitive environment they all have a common thread.  Using public news reports and real life examples of what is transpiring and identifying and applying these factors, attendees will emerge with tools for all sides of this equation: sustaining independence, selling a practice, sustaining hospital employment or terminating employment and re-establishing private practice.

Attendees will gain insight through experiences and examples to the underlying issues and opportunities that drive decision-making on the broad spectrum of situations every physician and physician practice faces, in one way or another.
