Motivating Physician Performance with Effective Provider Communication, Contracting & Collaboration Strategies
to be Subject of New Audio Webcast
October 14, 2010 At 1:30 PM EDT

MANASQUAN, NJ --  October 4, 2010: Today, even more attention than ever is focused on physicians and the role of physicians due to the passage of the health reform law. 

Physicians may take the lead in developing an accountable care organization in a healthcare market under Medicare’s Shared Savings Program. 

Physicians are also at the center of the health universe following release of the final regulations by the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology  strengthening pay-for-performance programs (P4P) and setting a foundation for improving quality, efficiency and safety through meaningful use of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology.

Healthcare organizations, health plans and observers increasingly see gain-sharing and P4P strategies as key to securing needed physician buy-in and performance to achieve desired healthcare quality and cost objectives.

Motivating Physician Performance with Effective Provider Communication, Contracting & Collaboration Strategies is scheduled for Thursday, October 14, at 1:30 PM EDT. This senior-level management briefing program will cover what will be driving relationships between providers and payers in the months and years ahead. 

How do physician and medical staff leadership motivate improved physician performance and still achieve and develop effective collaborative contracting strategies?

With today’s national emphasis on quality, how do you make gain-sharing work considering the many factors that influence contract terms, their negotiations, and administration of those contracts?

A major indicator is that many of the existing P4P programs are showing positive results and awarding significant incentives to physician-hospital participants, which is drawing the industry's attention.

This special program, given all of the initiatives today in the payer-provider dynamic, could not be more timely. 


The presenter for the program is Cynthia Marcotte Stamer
Attorney and Managing Shareholder of  Cynthia Marcotte Stamer, P.C.  She is an operations consultant and helps businesses to operationalize their risk management and compliance strategies by conducting officer, director and employee training.
